March 4 Meeting Delayed & Other Updates
March 4 Meeting Delayed
At present, I need to delay our scheduled March 4 meeting in Regina, due to unforeseen circumstances. We will be in touch with more information on this soon.
Updated Voters Lists
A number of you have reached out to ask when we would have voters lists available that incorporate Elections Canada data from last fall’s federal election. Presently, we are working to be able to provide you with an updated voters list reflecting these changes by March 20. If you have questions on this, please contact Jennifer Colin at Jennifer.Colin@elections.sk.ca.
Updated Version of The Election Act, 1996
A few weeks back, I let all of you know that legislative changes to The Election Act, 1996 had been brought into force and were now in effect. I want to ensure that all of you are aware that a completely updated version of the Act is now available online. You can download a PDF version from Publications Saskatchewan at https://publications.saskatchewan.ca/#/products/498.
I had planned to offer an overview of these changes at our March 4 meeting. In the meantime, I would still like to ensure that all of you are aware of these changes – both to the operational administration of the election as well as the electoral finance system. I intend to provide you with further guidance on these changes in a Communique soon.
Dr. Michael Boda
Chief Electoral Officer
Province of Saskatchewan
