Annual RPP meeting now June 19 and final by-election voters lists.

Change to RPP Meeting Date

Back at the end of November 2017, I asked you all to tentatively “save the date” of June 12, 2018 for our annual registered political party meeting. Unfortunately, that date will no longer work and we have had to push the meeting back by one week to Tuesday, June 19, 2018. Our plan is still to host the meeting at Government House here in Regina. I will provide further details over the coming months. I expect a portion of our meeting will be devoted to discussing the administration of the past four by-elections (Saskatoon Fairview last September and Kindersley, Melfort and Swift Current more recently) but if there is a topic that you feel would be of interest to all parties, please send an email to Richard Hall at [email protected] and we will consider how it might be incorporated.

New FTP Site and Final By-Election Lists

We have implemented a new secure file transfer portal (FTP) for registered political parties to gain access to voters lists. This portal is browser based and no longer requires FTP software. You can access it at in any web browser. Your existing FTP credentials from Elections Saskatchewan will provide you access to your downloads.

As of Friday, April 27, you will find the Final List of Electors (FLE) for the by-elections held in Kindersley, Melfort, and Swift Current on the above noted portal. If you have any issues, please contact Jordan Arendt at 306.531.2373 or [email protected]. If you supply Jordan with the email address of the person within your party who is responsible for the list, he will enable the recover password feature in case it is needed in the future.

Upcoming Deadlines

Finally, a few quick reminders:

  • Monday, April 30 is the deadline for registered political parties to file their annual fiscal period return;
  • Friday, June 1 is the deadline for candidate return of election expenses for the Kindersley, Melfort and Swift Current by-elections; and
  • Tuesday, September 4 is the deadline for registered political party return of election expenses for the Kindersley, Melfort and Swift Current by-elections.

As we have told you in the past, when multiple by-elections are held on the same date, an election expense return must be prepared for each event. If you have questions, contact Jennifer Colin at [email protected].
