Signatures for Petition – RPP Registration

Signature Collection – Petition for RPP Registration

Late last week, I provided you with a copy of an interpretation bulletin outlining my decision to accept electronic signatures on a petition for the purposes of establishing a plebiscite vote.

After consideration and upon receiving questions on the matter, I have issued a second interpretation bulletin examining the issue of electronic signatures for the purposes of completing the petition requirement to register a new political party under The Election Act, 1996. Again, I have found that an electronic signature satisfies the legal requirements of our Act. Further details can be found in the attached interpretation bulletin. 

You can find copies of all previously issued interpretation bulletins, as well as CEO Directives, CEO Orders and similar documents on our website at

If you have questions, I would be pleased to hear from you.
