Thinking about running in the upcoming municipal election or school board election? Wondering what is involved? Not sure who to ask?
Oxford County’s eight area municipalities are hosting a candidate information session on August 13 to explain the basics of the Municipal Elections Act, 1996, including forms and processes, voting methods and more. The session will benefit new and returning candidates.
The candidate information session takes place:

The sessions will begin with a presentation by the Ontario Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing and features MPAC (Municipal Property Assessment Corporation) representatives as invited guests. Each of Oxford’s municipalities will be on hand to take part in breakout sessions following the presentations to provide more specific information for candidates.
Participants are asked to please RSVP by Wednesday, August 6, 2014 to Michael Graves at 519-485-0120 or email@example.com, or to your local clerk.
