Elections New Brunswick

Many people are away from where they would ordinarily live, either working or attending school, and want to know if they can still vote in New Brunswick elections.

In order to vote in New Brunswick, one must be a Canadian Citizen, be at least 18 years of age by Election Day, have been ordinarily resident somewhere in New Brunswick for at least 40 days before Election Day, and be ordinarily resident in the riding where you apply to vote.

Temporarily working or studying outside of the province does not interrupt an individual’s status of being ordinarily resident and therefore they are still eligible to vote in New Brunswick elections. They can apply to the local returning office in the region where they normally live to request that a mail-in ballot be sent to them.

If not already on the voters’ list in the province, they must fill in an application to be added to the list of electors.
