- Applying for a Compliance Audit
An eligible voter who believes that a candidate or registered third party advertiser has contravened the election campaign finance rules under the Municipal Elections Act may apply for a compliance audit of their campaign finances.
To apply for a compliance audit for a mayoral candidate, councillor candidate, or registered third party advertiser:
- Complete the Compliance Audit Request Form (attached at the bottom of this page).
- Submit the form and any supporting documents in person or by mail to the Middlesex Centre Municipal Office, attention to the Municipal Clerk.
- Note that the municipality must receive the compliance audit application by June 29, 2023.
The Compliance Audit Committee will consider the application and, if granted, will appoint an auditor to audit the campaign finances. The committee will consider the audit results and decide whether to commence legal action.
The municipality does not accept compliance audit applications for school board trustee candidates; these must be submitted to the relevant school board directly.
- Accessible Elections
Middlesex Centre is committed to ensuring municipal elections are accessible for all eligible voters.
- The municipality has an Accessibility Policy in place and established separate procedures surrounding accessibility for the election.
- The 2022 Municipal Election Accessibility Summary Report was presented to Middlesex Centre council at their January 11, 2023 meeting.
We welcome your feedback as to how we may improve accessibility for our voters and candidates in future elections.
