At the London Elections Training on Financial Obligations it was mentioned that this discussion forum had a sample letter to broadcasters advising them on MEA requirements for advertising - perhaps done by Durham Clerks? Is it posted and I am missing it?

The AMCTO elections calendar says to publish the notice of nomination period beginning of January, 2018. I know of municipalities that published their notice in December, 2017, some in January, February etc. I published mine in March - on our website, our municipal facebook page and in the newspaper. My procedures say to publish once in the newspaper. Section 32 of the MEA says " the Clerk shall give notice of the offices for which persons may be nominated and of the nomination procedure under this Act". It does not stipulate when notice is to be provided. I am assuming it is up to the indivdual municipalities and as per their election procedures.

We have already put an ad in the paper advising of the election dates - more of an fyi - heads up.
I have marked down April 1 to put in our election ad advising of upcoming opening of nominations. Hope this helps.

Can somebody advised if and when we would advertise in a local paper regarding the Notice of Nomination for the Office for the 2018 Elections. I have advertised the Public Notice on the website, but not sure when to advertise in a local paper. Can someone advise, please and thank you
