Mayor Joanne Savage says there have been quite a few changes to the Election Act.
There will be a much shorter nomination period, says Savage. A window of May 1st to July 27th will be in place for candidates to formally apply for a place on the ballot.
Potential candidates must also submit a nomination form with 25 signatures endorsing them to run. Those 25 people must be eligible to vote in West Nipissing. Savage recommends that citizens who wish to make nominations pay a visit to Town Hall to ensure that they are on the voting list.
One aspect of the voting in West Nipissing that will remain the same is that it will take place by mail.
