Revision of Lists of Electors Begins

Electors in Cumberland-Colchester-Musquodoboit Valley, Hochelaga, Montmagny-L'Islet-Kamouraska-Riviere-du-Loup and New Westminster-Coquitlam can now make changes or add their names

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Oct. 7, 2009) - Elections Canada has started revising the preliminary lists of electors for all polling divisions in Cumberland-Colchester-Musquodoboit Valley (Nova Scotia), Hochelaga (Quebec), Montmagny-L'Islet-Kamouraska-Riviere-du-Loup (Quebec) and New Westminster-Coquitlam (British Columbia). Preliminary lists of electors are produced using information in the National Register of Electors.

Electors in these four electoral districts who are not on the list for their polling division or who are listed at the wrong address can ask for a revision by contacting their local Elections Canada office:

- Cumberland-Colchester-Musquodoboit Valley

- Hochelaga

- Montmagny-L'Islet-Kamouraska-Riviere-du-Loup

- New Westminster-Coquitlam

Door-to-door targeted revision will be conducted in selected areas.

Voter information cards will be mailed to all registered electors in the four electoral districts between Wednesday, October 14 and Friday, October 16, 2009. Electors who have not received a card by Wednesday, October 21, 2009, or who receive a card with incorrect information, should contact their local Elections Canada office.

A reminder brochure will be mailed to every household in the four electoral districts between Wednesday, October 21 and Friday, October 23, 2009.

"Every elector in these ridings should be included on the list of electors for his or her polling division," says Chief Electoral Officer Marc Mayrand. "It is very easy to register or to make corrections to information on the list."

Elections Canada is an independent body set up by Parliament.
