A date has been set for the Preston byelection.

Premier Tim Houston has informed Elections Nova Scotia that the election will take place on August 8th. It will be the first time that Nova Scotians will be able to vote electronically. An E-balloting system is being rolled out for residents who wish to cast their votes early.

I the recent months, Nova Scotia’s major political parties have been naming their candidates for the elections. Local businessman Carlo Simmons will represent the Liberals and was the first candidate to be announced in the election, coach, mentor, and youth advocate Colter Simmonds will run as the NDP candidate, and most recently Twila Grosse was announced as the PC candidate.

All parties seemed to make it a priority o find African Nova Scotia candidates to represent the historic black community of Preston.

The byelection was triggered when former Preston MLA Angela Simmonds resigned from her role earlier this year.
