FREDERICTON (CNB) - Notice to vote cards for the March 9 byelection in Restigouche-La-Vallée are expected to arrive by mail to residents in the riding beginning early this week.
More than 9,600 cards with the locations and times of advance and regular polls are being sent out to eligible voters.
"If an eligible voter does not receive a notice to vote card, this could mean that the individual is not on the voter's list or is not at his or her current address," said Mike Quinn, chief electoral officer. "Voters may have their names added to the voter's list or update their voter information by contacting the returning offices in Kedgwick or Sainte-Anne-de-Madawaska. Voters who are not on the voter's list may also be added at the polls."
Quinn said that the notice to vote cards are only for the convenience of voters. It is not necessary to have one to vote, but it speeds up the process if the voter brings it with him or her.
Voters looking for more information may call the Kedgwick returning office, 506-284-3497; the Sainte-Anne-de-Madawaska returning office, 506-445-6256; or TTY, 1-888-718-0544. They may also visit the Elections New Brunswick website, www.electionsnb.ca.
