During an election

Eligible voters can visit a returning office up to 4 days prior to an election with their completed application and supporting ID to ensure they appear on the list used at the polling station.

Voters can also bring their ID to their assigned polling station (based on address) and vote immediately, or they can be personally vouched for by another voter on the same list.

Removal from the voters list

An elector will be removed from the voters list when Elections NB receives notification:

  • of an elector's death from the Vital Statistics
  • that an elector has moved and obtained a new driver’s licence in another province. 

If you want your name taken off the list after voting, you must request this in writing to Elections NB.

Who can access the list

Only election officials or candidates are allowed to see the list.

Candidates may obtain Lists of Electors during an election to be used for election purposes only.  Between elections, Members of the Legislative Assembly and registered political parties get a copy of the list annually.
