Financial Period - Senatorial

Two Senate Nominee Elections were held in conjunction with a general election in Alberta under the Senatorial Selection Act.  Elections Alberta was responsible for the conduct of the two senatorial selections. The Senatorial Selection Act expired on December 31, 2016.

Senate nominee candidates were required to register with Elections Alberta in order to be allowed to raise and spend funds for their campaign, and were required to file nomination papers with the Chief Electoral Officer in order to appear on the Senate Nominee Election ballot.

Senate nominee candidates and their supporting political parties were required to file campaign period financial statements to disclose revenue, expenses, assets and liabilities related to the senatorial selection.  The campaign period began with the issuance of the Writ of Election and ended two months after voting day. Political parties that had revenue or expenses exceeding $1,000 for the reporting period were required to file audited financial statements. The statements were due 6 months after voting day for parties, and 4 months after voting day for candidates.

Political parties that endorsed one or more candidates in a Senate Nominee Election were permitted to continue related financial activities between campaigns and were required to file annual financial statements. The requirement to file ended when the Senatorial Selection Act expired.
