The Local Authorities Election Act (as amended) governs municipal 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.
Candidates are encouraged to develop a working understanding of all legislation concerning elections, including nominations, eligibility, campaigning restrictions, campaign finance and disclosure, election offences and prohibitions at voting stations.
