Elections Saskatchewan's vision is:
A made-in-Saskatchewan electoral process that responds to the needs of all of our stakeholders
There are eight aspects to our vision:
Broadly-based communications initiatives, publications and
advertising, combined with focused outreach programs will ensure that
all stakeholders are fully aware of their opportunities to be involved
in the electoral process.
Administrative and physical barriers that challenge or deter
electors will be identified, removed and replaced by inclusive and
accessible processes and procedures that will encourage the highest
level of participation in Saskatchewan electoral events.
Electors will have the opportunity to use proven and leading-edge
technologies to obtain electoral information and participate in all
aspects of the electoral process, including voter registration and
casting their ballot.
Cost effective electoral processes will take advantage of
state-of-the-art information and technical systems that capitalize on
public investment in government databases and related activities and
also benefit from public and private sector partnerships within
Saskatchewan and across Canada.
Increased compliance with the election finances provisions of the
legislation will be achieved through the direct involvement of
political parties, candidates, official agents and business managers in
the development of a full range of simplified assistance tools to be
provided by Elections Saskatchewan, resulting in reduced investigation
and enforcement activity.
The wishes and needs of all stakeholders in the electoral process
will be canvassed and considered through formalized and timely outreach
and consultative processes with provisions for meaningful review and
Through timely reviews of electoral processes and legislation by
Saskatchewan's legislators and the Chief Electoral Officer, necessary
innovation and flexibility in the statutory and operational framework
will be achieved while preserving the integrity of the system.
A pool of well-trained election officers will be available to
ensure that Elections Saskatchewan can meet its event-readiness mandate.
