CBRM Council has approved the use of electronic voting (i.e. by telephone automated system and internet) as the only means of voting during the 2020 Municipal and CSAP Elections. The Voting Period will begin at 8:00 am on Wednesday, October 7th and run 24 hours a day until the close of the polls on Election Day - Saturday, October 17th at 7:00 pm. There will be no paper ballots for this election.
We encourage all eligible voters not to wait until the last day to vote just in case there is an issue with their PIN or they need assistance. Voting can be done anytime during the Voting Period from the comfort of your home. Anyone requiring help should call the Returning Office and they will advise whether or not it is necessary to visit a voter help centre to obtain in-person assistance. Please note that it will be electronic voting ONLY at the voter help centres - there will not be any paper ballots.
