Municipal Elections are different than federal and provincial elections because they are run by employees of the municipality - even election staff are technically employed by the municipality. This is why municipalities do not provide biographies nor a platform for candidates.
You will have noticed that Candidate Forums are provided by third-party, arm's length, organizations, such as Chambers of Commerce.
This year the Mahone Bay and Area Chamber of Commerce found a way to still provide a platform for Candidates and published Candidate biographies in their recent newsletter.
If there is a candidate that you have not yet heard from, you are welcome to contact the Election Team at 902-523-1356 or firstname.lastname@example.org and we can share their contact information.
You should have received your Voter Information Letter in your mail by now.
Your Voter Information Letter will contain the instructions for how to vote, by phone, internet, or in person at one of our voting kiosks. This letter will also contain the unique PIN that you will use to cast your vote.
If you have not received your Voter Information Letter, please contact Town Hall at 902-624-8327 or email@example.com and we will make sure that you receive everything you need.
