Final arguments wrap up in Saint John Harbour voter irregularities case

Vote

Final arguments have been made in the matter of alleged voter irregularities in the riding of Saint John harbour during the New Brunswick election.

Lawyers for PC Candidate Barry Ogden say there were 71 irregularities in the September 24th election and are asking the court to set aside the results.

Liberal Gerry Lowe took the riding by a mere 10 votes which was confirmed in a recount.

The court did hear yesterday that eight non-residents of Saint John Harbour voted in the riding, but Lowe's team argued there was no evidence procedures weren't followed, suggesting it was an honest mistake.
