In-person advance polls Oct. 8 and Oct. 11

All eligible voters in the Halifax Regional Municipality are advised of two upcoming in-person advance polling dates for the municipal, Halifax Regional School Board, and CSAP elections.

Advance polls will be held on Saturday, Oct. 8 (noon-8 p.m.), and Tuesday, Oct. 11 (noon-8 p.m.). To find your advance poll location, please review your voter information letter or check online.

If you cannot find your location, please contact the Voter Helpline at 902-490-VOTE (8683) or 1-844-301-VOTE (8683) between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m.
