Chester Municipal Council has called a fall by-election.

Residents will go to the polls October 14 to choose a replacement for Councillor Andre Veinotte.

He resigned his seat last month due to personal reasons.

Veinotte had been the councillor for District 1 since winning the seat in October 2012.

Polls will be located at the District No. 1 Community Centre as well as the East Chester Recreation Association Hall.

Council has set aside October 5 and 10 for the advance polls.

Complete information on where and how to vote will be mailed to residents in the next couple of weeks.

Anyone interested in running for the seat will need to file their nomination papers with the Municipal Clerk by September 19.
