“Over the past year we have collectively rolled up our sleeves and got to work, beginning to deliver on the promises we have made while working closely with our electoral stakeholders across the province,” says Dr. Michael Boda, Saskatchewan’s Chief Electoral Officer and head of Elections Saskatchewan, the provincial election management body.
“There have been many important developments during 2014-15, but foundational to our work has been a genuine partnership between government and opposition political parties that have collaborated with my office to introduce 11 of 15 changes that had been recommended in a Chief Electoral Officer’s assessment in 2013. These include the introduction of a permanent register of voters and homebound voting.”
The 28th General Election is set, by law, for November 2, 2015. If there is a conflict with a federal election at that time, the alternative date for Saskatchewan’s election moves to April 4, 2016.
Elections Saskatchewan is the province’s independent, impartial, professional election management body. Given a mandate from the Saskatchewan Legislative Assembly, it organizes, manages and oversees provincial electoral events.
