Special Voting Rules as Adapted for the Purposes of a By-election

*Last amended on May 7, 2015

Note to the Reader



Subsection 178(1) of the Canada Elections Act provides that the Special Voting Rules set out in Part 11 of the Act apply to general elections only. However, subsection 178(2) stipulates that the Chief Electoral Officer may, by instructions, adapt Part 11 so that any or all of its provisions apply to a by-election. The Special Voting Rules as Adapted for the Purposes of a By-election constitute such instructions.
