Ulverton resident concerned by polling station change

By Gordon Lambie

Julie Miller was surprised when she received her voting card earlier this week and discovered that Ulverton’s polling station, which is typically located at the local community hall, had been moved to the nearby Wadleigh Vineyard, a private business. “We have always voted at the community hall, for municipal, provincial, and federal elections,” Miller said, explaining that where the hall provides a neutral space, she and other local residents feel uncomfortable about the idea of being told to go to a private business to cast their ballots because of the idea that the electoral process could serve as a sort of informal advertising for the business in question.
