Details about voting in the municipal election

In New Brunswick, you have the choice to vote in at least three locations. You can vote at your assigned polling stations (ordinary or advance) or at any Returning Office.  To find out where your polling office is click here.  

If you are not sure when or who you can vote for simply search your Municipal, DEC & RHA election information. Sometimes it takes a few minutes to give you the result so be patient.

If you don’t think you will get out to vote then consider voting by mail. Start that process now.

  • Electors have several options for making their request to vote by mail:
  • Electors may apply for their mail in ballot by using our online ballot application portal;
    Electors may downloadthe Application for a Special Ballot form (M 06 101)from our website; or
    Electors can request that a paper form be mailed or faxed to them.

Then you must complete the form, sign the application and send it to the appropriate returning office by:

  • Scanning, or taking a high-resolution photo of the form and emailing it;
    Having the form delivered by themselves, another person; or
    Mailing or faxing the form.

Once you send an Application for a Special Ballot to the Returning Office, the office prepares and sends a vote by mail package to you, by courier.

The package will contain an instruction sheet, the ballot, a secrecy envelope, and a certificate envelope.

Ballots must be returned to/received at the returning office where they were issued (as shown on the certificate envelope) before 8:00 p.m. on Election Day but they can be mailed anytime!

Advance Polls are Saturday May 1st  and Monday May 3rd  (10 a.m. to 8 p.m.)
