Notes for municipal candidates regarding newspaper election coverage

Format for candidates press releases in the Review

General Voting Day for local government elections in the province of British Columbia is always the third Saturday in November.

Information for prospective candidates running for office can be found on the Municipal Elections B.C. website located at:

http://www.municipalelections.com/faq_elections.html#votingday

In the interests of fairness to all, the Review has  put together a policy with respect to the publication of election materials which we hope will provide a level playing field to all concerned.

The Review will be accepting submissions from prospective candidates in all local municipal positions prior to the end of the nomination period, which is Friday, October 14. Submissions will be edited in a manner similar to letters to the editor, following a similar set of guidelines as outlined on page 6 of the  paper. Submissions will be published in the most current edition available. Please note that deadline for the current week’s issue is Monday noon, and all submissions are published subject to space availability in the issue. Three to five hundred word submissions would be well sized.

Following the close of nominations the Review will submit to all candidates registered, a list of questions relating to the position being sought. We will publish the candidates views in question and answer form as they come in to our office. Candidates’ photographs would be appreciated as well.

 

Editorial material reporting on the regular business of village council and the regional district board, including quotes and information supplied by those in elected positions, will continue as usual.
