FREDERICTON (GNB) – Elections New Brunswick is mailing out voter information cards to eligible New Brunswickers this week, advising them of when and where they can vote, as well as the list of contests for which they are eligible to vote.

More than 550,000 voter information cards are being sent in advance of the May 10 municipal council, district education council and regional health authority board elections. However, voters living in the Edmundston-Madawaska area of Zone 4, which is currently under lockdown, will only receive their cards once the lockdown is lifted and elections have resumed in their area.

“We strongly encourage electors to bring their cards with them to the polling station as this allows for faster service and reduces the likelihood of big lineups, which we want to prevent as much as possible during COVID-19,” said Kimberly Poffenroth, municipal electoral officer.

Eligible voters who do not receive a voter information card will be directed to a specific agent at each polling station who will verify the voters list and add or modify the person’s information if needed.

Voters can also find out where they can vote by using the search engine on Elections New Brunswick's website. This search engine will also help people find the contact information for the returning office in their region and the list of contests for which they are eligible to vote, including a list of all candidates running.
