FREDERICTON (GNB) – More than 500,000 New Brunswickers will receive voter information cards in the mail this week advising them when and where they can vote in the Sept. 14 provincial general election.

“We encourage voters to bring their voter information cards with them,” said Chief Electoral Officer Kim Poffenroth. “The cards allow our workers to process electors more quickly which, in turn, will help reduce the amount of time the electors have to spend inside the polling stations.”

Each household will receive an envelope from Elections New Brunswick containing the voter information cards for everyone living at that location. An extensive update of voter information was conducted earlier in August. Although some revisions were not received in time to correct the cards, the information on where and when to vote is still valid.

Eligible voters who do not receive a voter information card, or who do not bring it to the polling station, will be directed to a special team at each polling station that will ensure the individual is on the voters list or add the person to the list, if necessary.

Voters can also find voting information for their area online by visiting the Elections New Brunswick website. Using the Where Do I Vote” (Provincial Elections) link, a voter can quickly find the location of local polling stations, the list of candidates running in the electoral district, as well as contact information for the local returning office.
