By Rosalind Russell – Depending on the digital capability of individual municipalities, voters will see the tradition of voting on Election Day is different this year.

Voters are being asked to check with their local municipality for what voting procedures they will be following to fill municipal councils and school boards.

Other municipalities are also doing all their voting online but some including Nairn & Hyman Township are still using traditional paper ballots.
