NB ponders e-voting
New Brunswick's chief electoral officer is reviewing the possibility of using electronic voting machines on a wide basis.
The machines were used in a successful test run in Saint John during this week's municipal elections.
The province's training and employment development officer, Margaret-Ann Blaney, said the government is awaiting a report on the machines. She says there has been positive feedback about the electronic vote count.
NDP Leader Elizabeth Weir said the quick turnaround of vote numbers this year is a stark contrast to the last municipal election.
