The provincial government has opened consultation on the rules that govern municipal and school board elections to help meet the needs and expectations of Albertans. The government wants to hear from voters, elected officials, community advocacy groups and campaign volunteers on how rules can be improved to enhance transparency and participation in local elections. Take the survey until March 4, 2020.
Provide feedback on the following:
- the length of campaign period
- nomination process
- campaign finances
- third-party advertising
- recall of municipally elected officials
Government will also hold focused discussions with representatives from municipalities and community advocacy groups.
Feedback may be used to inform potential changes to the legislation, which could be brought forward in a future session of the legislature.
