To be a candidate in either the Municipal Election or Halifax Regional School Board Election you must be:
You do not need to reside in the polling district of the Halifax Regional Municipality in which you wish to seek election, as long as you meet the residency requirement of six months in the municipality.
*Annexed: refers to an area which has been added to a municipality by reason of an annexation or amalgamation and does not simply mean an area “adjacent” to a municipality. The Halifax Regional Municipality currently does not have any annexed areas.
