  • Changing your mind – running for a different office – endorsementsYou can only run for one office at a time. If you decide to run for a different office, your first nomination is deemed to be withdrawn when you file your second nomination.Since you submitted 25 endorsement signatures when you filed your first nomination for municipal council, you do not have to submit new endorsement signatures if you withdraw and file a nomination for a different office on the same municipal council. The Regional Chair and Regional Councillor are not considered the same council; therefore, new endorsements would have to be collected and submitted. Similarly, if you have filed your first nomination for a positon on Regional council and you withdraw and file for nomination on the municipal council; new endorsements would have to be collected and submitted. All this must be done by 2:00 p.m. on Nomination Day, July 27, 2018.
