Voter information update mailer (Elections NB photo)

The May municipal elections are quickly approaching – and – Elections New Brunswick is in the final stages of preparation.

That preparation includes the updating of voter information. A bright yellow envelope will be in your mailbox this week with your voter information currently on file. If there are any errors or changes – you are being asked to contact Elections New Brunswick immediately to correct or update the information.

There is also a flyer in the envelope with details on voting options and steps being taken to make voting safer. Chief Electoral Officer Kim Poffenroth says “as was the case in last year’s provincial elections – we encourage people to vote early at advance polls or at their local returning office to help us flatten the election curve.” Poffenroth also says “Elections NB also has a new application process available as of Monday – March 22 – that allows people to request a vote-by-mail package directly from our website.”

The Elections New Brunswick call centre is now open Monday to Saturday to update information and answer questions at 1-888-858-8683.
