History of NWTElection.ca
This is the first edition of NWTElection.ca. Finding information on candidates in the election can be a challenge – more than it should be. After seeing similar efforts in other provinces and territories, it was clear that a similar solution was needed in the NWT.
Not Affiliated with Elections NWT
NWTElection.ca has no affiliation with Elections NWT or the NWT territorial government.
Elections NWT, the official Election authority for territorial elections, runs the official Elections NWT website as well as their Electorhood tool. Its site includes additional information related to the voting process, being a candidate, voter registration and a poll location search tool.
