Voter Turnout in District 10 Advanced Polls
Election Officials in the Cape Breton Regional Municipality have released turnout results from the first day of advance voting to fill Council and School Board seats in District 10. They say 335 people cast ballots online or by phone, yesterday. They add that represents about 4.6 percent of eligible voters. The Returning Office says the Voter Help Desk and the Clerk’s Office have taken a number of calls from people looking for help with electronic voting. It adds most were easily accommodated with minimal assistance. The Returning Office plans to release a daily total of those who cast their ballots in the advance online and telephone polls. People who would like to vote using traditional paper ballots can mark their X between 8:00 in the morning and 7:00 at night on election day, Saturday, September 6th.
