Updated Local Authorities Election Act
The Local Authorities Election Act (LAEA) governs municipal and school division elections in Alberta. It sets out rules and regulations for candidates, donors, electors, and election administrators that must be followed before, during and after an election.
Note that the LAEA was updated on September 1, 2020 and includes amendments related to:
- Nomination period
- Contributions to campaigns
All candidates are encouraged to develop a working understanding of the Local Authorities Election Act.
It is recommended that candidates seek legal advice, where possible, regarding their obligations.
