An error in printing voter information cards has resulted in the municipality extending the period for online voting in next month’s municipal election.
The cards (currently being distributed through Canada Post) correctly indicated the dates of the originally planned internet voting (October 1, 2018 at 10 a.m. to October 14, 2018 at 10 p.m.), but the day of the week preceding those dates are inaccurate.
October 1st is actually a Monday (VIN cards say it is a Tuesday), while October 14 is a Sunday (VIN cards say it is a Monday).
In order minimize any confusion these cards may cause with electors, the municipality will make internet voting available for the longest time that could be possibly interpreted from the cards.
As a result, online voting will begin Monday, October 1 at 10 a.m. and will close Monday, October 15 at 10 p.m.
