The 2017 municipal election will be held on Monday, Oct. 16.

Notice of Intent Application

Due to changes to the Local Authorities Election Act, the nomination process will change for the upcoming election. Individuals interested in running for Mayor or Council must file an application with the Town before accepting or allocating any funds towards an election campaign.

In addition to the notice of intent application, candidates must also submit 15 signatures in support of their nomination.

Candidates can download the notice of intent application or pick one up from the High River Municipal Office located at 309B Macleod Trail S.W. starting on March 15 between the hours of 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.

As all municipalities are required to maintain a register of candidates, a list will be posted for the public on the Town’s website. Candidates must notify the Town within 48 hours of any changes to the information provided on their application so that the registry can be adjusted accordingly.
