RESULTS OF ELECTION :
It has come to the Town of Wolfville’s attention that there is wording in the Town’s Voter Information Letter for the current municipal election that says ‘COUNCILLORS Vote for SIX of the following:’. This is misleading. The wording should be ‘COUNCILLORS Vote for up to SIX of the following:’ An elector is not required to vote for a total of six councillors and can vote for fewer if they choose.
The instructions are clear and correct on the internet voting site - once an elector visits the site to cast their vote, it states: ‘Please select no more than SIX of the following:’ on the screen. The same message is included in the recorded message for anyone using telephone voting. Thank you.
