There are two candidates in the running for a vacant seat on the New Minas village commission, so a byelection will be held.
Bruce MacArthur and Kenneth Pineo are the two candidates vying for the seat, which was vacated following the recent death of Dean Hatt. Hatt was serving his third term on the village commission when he passed away at age 79.
Advance polling will take place in the board room at the Louis Millett Community Complex in New Minas on March 8 from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Regular voting day is March 12. Eligible electors can cast ballots at the Louis Millett Community Complex civic centre from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.
