The next Beaumont General Election will be on Monday, October 18, 2021.
Is there a contingency plan for the 2021 municipal elections if the pandemic is still ongoing?
YES. Municipal Affairs has met with key municipal stakeholders to discuss potential risks relating to the 2021 municipal general election, and have identified a number of temporary modifications that could be made, if needed, to specific requirements under the Local Authorities Elections Act (LAEA). These modifications, if needed, will provide municipalities with additional flexibility and greater ability to align election operations with public health orders or recommendations.
Information will be updated as available.
