An elector who is concerned about a candidate's election finances and wishes to challenge them can file a compliance audit.
Application for an Election Compliance Audit
What steps do I take if I have a concern about a candidate's election campaign finances?
1. Contact the Municipal Clerk and see if further information can be provided that answers your questions or concerns.
2. If you believe that a candidate's election campaign finances contravened the Municipal Elections Act, submit a written letter of application to the Municipal Clerk for a compliance audit. See "How do I apply for a compliance audit?" below.
What is a compliance audit?
A compliance audit is an audit of a candidate's election campaign finances and their compliance with the provisions of the Municipal Elections Act, 1996 related to election campaign finances.
What is the Joint Municipal Election Compliance Audit Committee?
The powers and functions of the Committee are set out in the Municipal Elections Act, 1996. The Joint Municipal Election Compliance Audit Committee for the Municipality of Port Hope and Northumberland County Partner Municipalities consists of five members and does not include employees or officers of the municipality, members of the council, or any persons who were candidates in the election for which the committee is established. The Committee holds the same term of office as council.
The Committee will:
• Within 30 days of receiving the compliance audit written letter of application, consider whether an application should be granted or rejected.
• If the application is granted, appoint an auditor to conduct a compliance audit of the candidate's election campaign finances.
• Receive the auditor's report.
• Within 30 days of receiving the auditor's report, consider the report and decide whether legal proceedings should begin or make a finding whether there were reasonable grounds for the application.
• Recommend to Port Hope Council whether or not to pursue the recovery of the costs of conducting the compliance audit from the applicant if the auditor's report indicates there were no apparent contraventions and if it appears there was no reasonable ground for the application.
