Agricultural Industry Election Services

Whether or not you are currently a client partner, we are pleased to offer our services to the agricultural industry as a Returning Officer and/or Scrutineer, to help you ensure a stress-free, successful election outcome.

Prior to contracting for this service we will hold extensive discussions with you to best determine the type of election you expect and the requirements that you have based upon that expectation and your Regulatory requirements. A copy of your Regulations will be requested to ensure strict adherence in all aspects of your election activities.

Do you need professional assistance to create an accurate and impactful ballot package which will ensure maximum voter return? We have the expertise to help with that! We can liaise with your printer (or our own) as well as with Canada Post to ensure that your voter package is delivered on time and on budget to your eligible voters.
