The Local Authorities Election Act is the legislation that establishes the framework for local elections in cities, towns, villages, summer villages, municipal districts, counties, specialized municipalities, and school boards in Alberta. Metis Settlements and Irrigation Districts also use the act to conduct their elections.

The Government of Alberta is committed to ensuring the act meets the needs of all Albertans, including electors, potential candidates, elected officials, administrations, and third party advertisers, while ensuring that the democratic principles of fairness and transparency are achieved. 

This survey seeks feedback on specific areas of the Local Authorities Election Act relating to the campaign period, nomination process, candidate campaign finance, third party advertising and potential recall of local elected officials. All Albertans are invited to share their feedback, which will be used to help inform potential amendments to the act.

The survey should take approximately 15-20 minutes to complete.
