Writs issued for by-elections in Miramichi Bay-Neguac and Southwest Miramichi-Bay du Vin

Elections New Brunswick

The writ has dropped for by-elections in the ridings of Miramichi Bay-Neguac and Southwest Miramichi-Bay du Vin.

Elections New Brunswick says voters can cast their ballots on Election Day, Monday June 20th, or in advance polls on Saturday June 11th or Monday June 13th.

The two seats have been vacant since mid-August last year, when Liberal MLA Lisa Harris and Progressive Conservative MLA Jake Stewart resigned to run in the federal election.

Currently, the Progressive Conservatives hold 28 seats in the Legislative Assembly, with the Liberals holding 16 and the Green Party holding three.

The close of nominations for both by-elections is 2:00 p.m. on Friday, June 3rd.
