COMMISSIONER OF CANADA ELECTIONS
CANADA ELECTIONS ACT
This notice is given by the Commissioner of Canada Elections, pursuant to section 521 of the Canada Elections Act, S.C. 2000, c. 9.
On June 14, 2001, the Commissioner of Canada Elections, pursuant to section 517 of the Canada Elections Act, entered into a compliance agreement with the contracting party of the City of London, Canada.
In this agreement, the contracting party admits voting twice. The contracting party did so in the mistaken belief that the first time was in the municipal election, which was taking place around that time, but was actually the advance poll for the federal election. The second vote was on election day. As such, the contracting party contravened section 7 and paragraph 483(b) of the Canada Elections Act.
In summary in the compliance agreement, the contracting party:
- acknowledges not having intentionally voted twice in the federal election;
- acknowledges the requirement of the Canada Elections Act that no elector who has voted at an election may request another ballot, and
- recognizes the seriousness of her actions in the electoral process.
Ottawa, June 14 2001
Raymond A. Landry
Commissioner of Canada Elections
