Vancouver elections officer Janice Mackenzie said the city received its list of registered voters from Elections BC, and became aware of the omission of Musqueam residents Wednesday.
Mackenzie said the city found that 1,069 registered voters did not get their voter cards. Those individuals will receive their voter registration cards in time to vote on Saturday, she said.
Mackenzie said she is confident that the integrity of the election is intact, and the omission did not prevent 35 Musqueam members from voting already in the advance polls.
