There are new campaign financing rules for elector organizations in the 2018 General Local Elections. The new rules are summarized in this bulletin (PDF).

Elector organizations must open a separate campaign account, use it for all financial transactions, and file a disclosure statement with Elections BC within 90 days after General Voting Day.

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.
