Elector Organizations

A local elections elector organization promotes a candidate or group of candidates during a local election in one or more jurisdictions. Elector organizations are also known as civic political parties.

Elector organizations file endorsement documents with their local Chief Election Officer. If approved by the local Chief Election Officer, the elector organization’s name, abbreviation or acronym will appear on the ballot beside their endorsed candidate’s name.

Elections BC helps elector organizations and their financial agents understand the rules under the Local Elections Campaign Financing Act. Among other requirements, elector organizations must:

  • Open a separate campaign account and use it for all financial transactions.
  • File a disclosure statement with Elections BC within 90 days after General Voting Day.

For more information about the rules, read the Guide to Local Elections Campaign Financing in B.C. (PDF) or visit our Local Elections FAQ page.
