The Election Act and Local Elections Campaign Financing Act (LECFA) establish administrative monetary penalties for some cases of non-compliance with those Acts. The Chief Electoral Officer has the authority to determine whether non-compliance has occurred and, if so, the amount of the penalty within ranges established by those Acts.
