** Elections Nova Scotia is an independent, non-partisan agency that is responsible for the administration of the Elections Act.
** Our mandate includes conducting liquor plebiscites as well as provincial general elections and by-elections.
** Over the history of our province, electors just like you have been called to vote on plebiscite questions ranging from whether cities and towns should amalgamate to whether liquor should be allowed in Nova Scotia at all.
** A plebiscite is a vote on one specific question and the result of the vote can change a piece of legislation or can make something legal, like the sale of liquor.
