Alberta Government Opens Consultation On Local Election Rules

The Alberta government is asking the public to provide input on election rules for municipalities and school boards. An online survey will be up on the website until March 4th covering topics including the campaign period length, the nomination process, campaign finance, third-party advertising and the recall of municipally elected officials.

The Alberta government has opened consultation on the rules which govern municipal and school board elections.

The Local Authorities Election Act was reviewed and revised following local elections in 2017.
However, Nathan Cooper - the Speaker of the Alberta Legislative Assembly - says feedback continues to come in to the provincial government suggesting that gaps exist in the legislation.
The Olds-Didsbury-Three Hills MLA says the Alberta government is also wrapping up its pre-budget consultation.
The pre-budget consultation closed on Friday, February 7th.
Cooper says they are gathering feedback from Albertans on aspects of the Local Authorities Election Act.
The survey regarding local election rules engagement will be up until March 4th. Visit the website to provide feedback on either of those topics.
