CANDIDATES

In the Fall of 2021 all Municipalities in Alberta held general elections for council. The Town of Falher did not receive a sufficient number of nominations. As such, the Minister of Municipal Affairs issued a Ministerial Order temporarily allowing a council of 5, with the requirement for a By-Election prior to April 30, 2022 in order to fill the 2 Vacant seats.

 

On November 10, 2021, Council passed Resolution 21-428 to hold a municipal by-election on Tuesday April 26, 2022, pursuant to MINISTERIAL ORDER NO.: MSD:099/21.

 

 

Nominations are open from November 11, 2021 until Noon (12pm) on Wednesday, March 30, 2022.

Updated Local Authorities Election Act

The Local Authorities Election Act (LAEA) governs municipal and school division elections in Alberta. It sets out rules and regulations for candidates, donors, electors, and election administrators that must be followed before, during and after an election.

We strongly encourage curious voters to review the LAEA to gain a better understanding of Municipal Elections in Alberta.

The LAEA can be found here.
