The vote on doctor assisted dying has been postponed.

Haliburton-Kawartha Lakes-Brock MP Jamie Schmale says with this extra time, he is still encouraging locals to fill out their ballots indicating how they feel about the bill.

He is asking people to read all the information in the package carefully, before they make their choice.

Schmale says the new voting date hasn’t been set, but he thinks it will be next week.

The ballot can be found here.
