Web Tool Issue
The Where and When Can I Vote? web tool that helps electors find their designated location to vote has been performing poorly this morning. The tool is housed on a government-based server and IT personnel in government and Elections Nova Scotia are working to resolve the issue.
Electors are reminded that their voter information card has all the necessary information. The VICs were sent to 750,000 eligible electors in the province. Until the tool is working, please check the voter information card, or call your local returning office.
Poll hours are being extended at two voting locations due to a delayed opening.
The First United Church location is being extended by 30 minutes. Polls will close at that location at 8:30pm.
Ummah Mosque 2510 St. Matthias Street poll is being extended by 15 minutes. Polls will close at that location at 8:15pm.
