Election Agents

Appointment

Each candidate may appoint a person to be his or her chief election agent.

This appointment must be made before, on or after nomination day but not later than 7 days before polling day or the first polling day. The candidate must notify the constituency elections officer of the full names and address of his or her chief elections officer and the constituency elections officer must then give public notice giving details of the chief elections officer so appointed.

If a candidate fails to give notice of the appointment of a chief elections agent, the candidate will be deemed to be his or her own chief elections agent.

Not later than three days before the polling day or first polling day, a chief election agent may appoint one or more persons, not exceeding such number as may be prescribed, to be his or her election agents and must forthwith notify in writing the full names and address of every election agent so appointed to the constituency elections officer.
