‘For myself, I didn’t feel right. It wasn’t fair. I was there to vote,’ says one woman turned away
Oct 06, 2022
Stories are emerging of Cree voters in the northern Quebec riding of Ungava who were unable to cast their ballots in Quebec’s provincial election this past Monday.
Cynthia Neeposh has spent most of her life in the Cree community of Mistissini and has lived in the same house for the last 15 years.
But on Monday, election workers said her name wasn’t on the voter list and she couldn’t vote.
“For myself, I didn’t feel right. It wasn’t fair. I was there to vote. It’s my right to vote,” she said, adding she received her voter card in the mail and it had her name and her correct address on it.
