Voters in Preston are Reminded to Bring Their VIC When They Vote

Media Release: August 2, 2023

Elections Nova Scotia – All registered voters in Preston should have received a personalized voter information card (VIC) in the mail for the current by-election. VICs include information on the where and when to vote. Voters in Preston should remember to bring their VIC and ID when they vote.

Elections Nova Scotia has redesigned the VICs to make this easier for voters to understand. The new VICs went through an accessibility review and have been received well by voters.

Eligible voters in Preston can vote without a VIC if they have ID with their name and civic address. If an eligible voter in Preston does not have ID with their current address or name they can opt to sign a declaration attesting to their eligibility. If a voter receives a VIC with errors in it, they should bring it with them when they vote and have their information updated on the list of electors.

Eligible voters in the Preston by-election must be 18 years of age or older on Tuesday, August 8, 2023, a Canadian citizen, reside in the electoral district of Preston, and have lived in Nova Scotia since January 7, 2023 (six months before the writ of election was issued).

Voters in Preston that have questions about the by-election can call the returning office at 1-888-503-5835.
