Voting day in Cape Breton North
Voters in the electoral district of Cape Breton North head to the polls Tuesday for a byelection.
The seat became vacant when Cecil Clarke resigned to run in the federal election in early May. He didn't win.
About 14,000 people are eligible to vote. Nearly 2,000 — or about 14 per cent — cast ballots in the advance polls.
Based on that turnout, returning officer Alden MacLeod expects a lot of interest in Tuesday's race.
Four men are vying for the seat in the Nova Scotia legislature:
- Jonathan Dean - Atlantica Party
- Russell MacDonald - New Democratic Party
- Brian McGean - Liberal Party
- Eddie Orrell - Progressive Conservative Party
The polls open at 8 a.m. and close at 7 p.m.
Results will be available on the Elections Nova Scotia website.
