6.2 Percent Vote in Day 1 of Advance Polls
CBRM Election officials say 6.2 percent of eligible voters cast ballots in the first day of advance voting in municipal and school board elections, yesterday.
That amounts to more than 5-thousand people voting online or by phone.
The Clerk’s Office says it fielded numerous calls yesterday and adds it expects many more people will choose to cast ballots in advance voting.
People can vote online or by phone 24 hours a day until 7:00 next Wednesday night.
CBRM returning officer Deborah Campbell says all eligible voters should have gotten a letter by now.
The letter contains a personal identification number or PIN people will need in order to vote by phone or online.
It also contains information on polling stations for people who choose to cast a paper ballot on Election Day, Saturday, October 15th.
Anyone who didn’t get a letter or has questions about voting can call the Voter Help Desk at 902-567-5889 during regular business hours.
