Candidate Representatives

Candidates are not permitted to be present at any voting place while voting is being conducted — except to vote. Candidate representatives are appointed to observe voting and voter registrations, ensure the requirements of the Election Act are followed, and to observe ballot counting to make sure it is consistent and fair.

For more information on the responsibilities of candidate representatives, see our Guide for Candidate Representatives on the Guides page.

To appoint a candidate representative, see the Appointment of Candidate Representative Form and Appointment of Candidate Representative for the Purpose of Campaigning Form on our Forms page.
