Eligible Voters Encouraged to Register for the Preston By-election

Media Release: July 11, 2023

Elections Nova Scotia – Elections Nova Scotia maintains a Register of Electors of anyone eligible to vote in a Nova Scotia provincial general election or by-election. The Register is updated regularly and there are several ways to be added to the list. Eligible voters can register any time on-line to ensure they are on the Nova Scotia Registry of Electors.

Eligible voters in the electoral district of Preston who are not already on the list of electors are encouraged to register to vote in the by-election to be held August 8, 2023.

New votes include young adults 18 years of age or older, new Canadian citizens, or voters who have moved to Nova Scotia and have not yet voted in a provincial election.

Though being registered before arriving at a voting location is not required, those who are registered are sent a personalized Voter Information Card (VIC) with information on where and when to vote.

To be eligible to vote in the Preston by-election, you must be a Canadian citizen, 18 years or over on August 8, 2023, reside in the electoral district of Preston and have lived in Nova Scotia for at least six months from the day the by-election was called (since January 7, 2023).

Elections Nova Scotia is a non-partisan and independent agency responsible for conducting provincial elections. For more information, please visit electionsnovascotia.ca or follow us on Facebook and Twitter @electionsns.
