Results of nomination period:
Following the close of nomination period at 4:30 p.m. today for the office of Village Commissioner, the Returning Officer confirms that the number of nominations accepted exceeds the two seats available and, therefore, an election is called to determine the successful candidates. Two candidates will be elected Village Commissioners to serve three- year terms ending June 2023.
The following candidates have been duly nominated:
o Burke, Thomas R. e
o Clark, Justin Arnold
o McNutt, Carvell Scott
o Lowe, Bradley

The Village will hold two days of voting at the Village Hall, 69 Pictou Road, Bible Hill, as follows:
o Advance Poll – Tuesday, June 2, 2020, between the hours of 11 a.m. and 7 p.m.
o Election Day – Saturday, June 6, 2020, between the hours of 9 a.m. and 7 p.m.
To vote, a person must, as of advance polling day:
o be a Canadian citizen;
o be at least 18 years old;
o have been ordinarily resident in Bible Hill, Nova Scotia for six months; and

The Village will ensure proper public health protocols are in place for voting. Residents will form a line, keeping two metres apart, and enter open doors of the Village Hall where hand sanitizer and/or gloves, as well as a new pencil will be provided. From there, residents will be directed to proceed, one at a time, moving through the building in one direction to be registered by an employee, receive a ballot, and to vote. Residents will then discard or keep their pencil and exit the Village Hall through open doors at the opposite end from where they entered.
