Nomination Period Closed

Candidate Nomination Closed

At 2 p.m. today, the candidate nomination period for the Saskatoon Meewasin by-election closed. The list of officially nominated candidates is as follows:

  • Mark Friesen, Buffalo Party of Saskatchewan
  • Jacklin Andrews, Saskatchewan Green Party
  • Nathaniel Teed, New Democratic Party, Sask. Section
  • Jeff Walters, Saskatchewan Liberal Party
  • Kim Groff, Saskatchewan Party

I want to ensure that you are aware that, during a by-election, there is no legislative provision for a candidate who resides outside of the constituency to be added to the voters list or to cast a ballot. This differs from a general election where the candidate as well as their spouse and dependents can vote (and be added to the voters list) under Section 16(5) of The Election Act, 1996. That section of the Act is only applicable during a general election and not during by-elections.  

Vote by Mail Reminder

The deadline for voters to apply to vote by mail is end of day on Thursday, September 15. I believe Vote by Mail is a good option for every voter in this by-election as it can help to ensure they can cast their ballot even if unexpected circumstances, such as a COVID-19 infection, take place. Over the next few days, I hope that you will continue to encourage your supporters and contacts to consider Vote by Mail as an option for this by-election. I very much appreciate your cooperation in this regard. 

Voter registration will also close at end of day on Thursday, September 15. Voters can still register at the time of voting.

Thank you for your attention to these important deadlines.

Dr. Michael Boda
Chief Electoral Officer
Province of Saskatchewan
