    Hello! I'm a New Brunswick resident that has lived in Moncton my whole life. I am moving to Ottawa for the summer to partake in a coop stage for my degree at the University of Ottawa, a degree which I have been doing virtually from Moncton for the past year. I would really like the chance to vote in this election, but I'm moving on May 2nd, and the voting period starts after that. Is there a chance I could do a mail-in ballot? How do I go about getting a special ballot that would work for me? Thank you

    Hello,
    You must reach out to ElectionsNB to determine your options, as the municipalities do not manage the voter lists or process. 

    Best of luck!

    Est-ce qu'il y aura possibilité d'ajouter des nouveaux candidats? Si oui, quelle est la date limite?

    Conrad asked 3 months ago

    Bonjour, 

    Et merci pour votre question. En fait, le processus de mise en candidature a également été repoussé d'un an. Les intéressés doivent donc respecter les lignes directrices et échéanciers indiquées par Élections NB pour soumettre leur nom au scrutin. Tous les détails se trouvent ici : https://www.electionsnb.ca/content/enb/fr/EMDSRRS-2021.html

    Cordialement,
    Nicole

    TRANSLATION: Can new candidates be added? If so, what are the deadlines? 
    All requirements and deadlines for the municipal election were also held over to this year, so interested citizens could seek to add their name to the ballot. Details are outlined here: https://www.electionsnb.ca/content/enb/en/MDECRHA-2021.html.

    I’ll be out of town on May 11th. Is it possible to place my votes on the week of March 16th? Is so, how? Is online voting available?

    Marc-Andre LeBlanc asked about 1 year ago

    Hello, 

    Elections NB sets the dates for advance polls, which this year will take place on May 2 and May 4 (https://www1.gnb.ca/Elections/en/mun20may11/20may11munschedulelist-e.asp). Your voter card will include details on location and time. If these dates do not work for you, you may consider applying for a special ballot: https://www.electionsnb.ca/content/enb/en/voters/when_where.html

    Though it is a frequent topic of discussion and debate, online voting has not yet been adopted by the Province. 

    Hope this helps,

    Nicole
