Candidate responsibilities

All candidates must appoint a financial agent. The agent can be another person or the candidate themselves. Financial agents must keep campaign contribution and election expense records, and file the candidate disclosure statement required under the Local Elections Campaign Financing Act.

Candidates may also appoint official agents to act as their representatives in the election process and scrutineers to observe voting and ballot counting, but are not required to appoint these positions.

Spending

Candidates must open a separate election campaign account as soon as possible after they receive their first contribution or incur their first expense. All campaign related financial transactions must be done through that account.

A candidate disclosure statement must be submitted within 90 days of the election and include a full accounting of contributions, expenses, and any monetary transfers between campaign accounts.
