Voter info card can be changed Tuesday only

  • Apr. 26, 2011 4:00 p.m.

Islanders who received voter information cards directing them to vote in a community different than the one they live in have until 6 pm TODAY (April 26) to have the mistake fixed. Returning officer Brian Roberts said people who want to correct information should call his office at 1-866-546-7618 as soon as possible. Tlell resident Elizabeth Condrotte said she received a voter information card telling her to vote in Queen Charlotte rather than Tlell, she knows of at least one other Tlell resident in the same situation. Ms Condrotte spoke to Mr. Roberts and got her poll location changed, and she is urging everyone to check their cards and make sure they’re correct. She said she had no idea her card was wrong and had simply assumed that the Tlell polling station – where she has been voting for years – had been discontinued. Ms Condrotte said she is very concerned that some people won’t vote rather than make an inconvenient and possibly expensive drive to another community to cast their ballot. There will be polling stations in all seven islanders communities on Monday. People should vote at the poll indicated on their voter information card, Mr. Roberts said, although it is possible to re-register on voting day. Once again, if you have questions about your voter information card, or want to correct a mistake, call 1-866-546-7618 by 6 pm today.
