Advance Voting For Local Government Elections

By Brad Perry Nov 18, 2022 | 3:00 PM

Advance voting begins this weekend ahead of the upcoming local government elections on Nov. 28.

Polls are open both Saturday and Monday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. both days.

Chief electoral officer Kim Poffenroth says it is a good idea to vote early if you can.

“By voting early, New Brunswickers are helping to reduce the risk of lineups on election day,” Poffenroth said in a news release on Friday.

Those who are voting in the elections should have received a voter information card in the mail.

You are encouraged to bring that with you to help speed up the process. Each card has a unique bar code which will help workers quickly find your name.

If you are not on the list, you are still able to cast a ballot, though you will have to show identification to be added to the list.

New Brunswickers can also vote by special ballot at one of the 17 returning offices around the province from Monday through Saturday, up to and including election day.
