PORTAGE DU FORT Oct.1, 2018
Residents of Portage du Fort had to travel to Bryson in order to cast their vote in the recent provincial election when they found out at the last minute that their municipality would not have a polling station.
A petition is being circulated in town by residents to convey their dissatisfaction with the change. The petition, which now has more than 130 signatures, was the brainchild of local business owner, Nicole Thompson.
Thompson, the returning officer for poll 18, said the change of the polling station’s location led to a sharp drop off in the number of voters.
