The Ontario Election is right around the corner, and the Municipal election is coming up this fall.
In fact today is the start of the official nomination period.
Candidates for Municipal council or school board trustee can file their nomination forms during regular business hours at their municipal office.
The nomination period runs until Friday, July 27th.
There are fees involved and vary according to the municipality in which you live.
You can pay by cash, debit, certified cheque or money order when you file the nomination form.
Candidates must not spend or raise any funds for their election campaign until the nomination form has been filed.
New this year are rules for third party advertising.
A third party advertiser is any individual, corporation or trade union that causes an election campaign advertisement to appear.
Third party advertisers are required to register with the Clerk’s Office.
Registrations of third party advertisers will be accepted starting today, Tuesday, May 1, 2018 until Friday, October 19, 2018.
