CMM Electoral Office
Elections are fundamental to the democratic governance of our First Nation Communities. Elections enable voters to select leaders and to hold them accountable for their performance in office.
The Electoral Office was created for the benefit of The Confederacy of Mainland Mi’kmaq’s (CMM) eight-member communities. The office will provide Electoral Services including:
- Band elections including Indian Act, First Nation Election Act, Custom Elections
- Surveys – and questionnaires
- Support for Provincial and Federal Elections
The Electoral Office not only conducts the elections but provides guidance and information during each phase of the election. Most recently this has been achieved by implementing safety procedures in communities for holding elections during the pandemic.
Currently, our office is looking to expand services to include public opinion data collection, and analysis. Our office is available to work on and conduct survey development, distribution, and collection.
Services form the Electoral Office are available to all organizations for hire. Please contact find our electoral office contact information in our Staff section of the website.
