Nomination Contests are the processes by which registered parties or constituency associations select and endorse candidates for an election. Political parties must notify Elections Alberta when they are holding a nomination contest and report the contest results. Nomination Contestants are persons who seek endorsement as the candidate and must register with Elections Alberta, as soon as they announce their intention to seek endorsement, or incur an expense for their nomination campaign, or receive a contribution for their nomination campaign.
All nomination contestants must appoint a Chief Financial Officer (CFO) who is responsible for maintaining records of all revenue, expenses, assets and liabilities and issuing official contribution receipts. A nomination contestant's election expenses are not to exceed $10,000. Nomination contestants and their CFOs are required to file a financial statement within four months after the selection date / conclusion of the contest, even if there was no financial activity. Surplus funds at the end of the campaign period must be dealt with no later than 30 days after the filing deadline date. Nomination campaign deficits must be eliminated within three months following the filing deadline date.
