For the first time, the enumeration is scheduled to take place outside of the election period. The general election of Members of the Legislative Assembly of Yukon will take place in 2016 - no date has been set at this time.
Enumerators play a very important role in our communities. "Their efforts make voting easy and accessible for everyone", said Lori McKee, Chief Electoral Officer. Eligible electors are encouraged to contact Elections Yukon if they would like to serve their communities and earn extra income by joining the enumeration team.
Yukoners are asked for their cooperation when local enumerators visit. Sharing the requested information, and providing a safe environment by containing dogs, will ensure this important initiative is completed effectively and safely.
Changes to the Elections Act allow for the creation of a Permanent List of Electors. The Permanent List will contain electors' full names, along with residential and mailing addresses. This will allow Elections Yukon to provide accurate information to electors on where to vote at election time and ensure election readiness for future electoral events.
Enumerators will collect birth dates and genders when they visit. Birth dates and genders do not appear on the Lists of Electors used by election workers, political parties or candidates. Access to that information is restricted to Elections Yukon and Elections Canada, for use in updating the Permanent List as electors move and change their names.
Elections Canada has supported the territorial enumeration and, through a partnership agreement, will share elector information to improve the quality of both federal and territorial Lists of Electors. The Elections Act allows for similar partnerships with municipal election offices, once agreements are in place. This sharing will improve service at election time and save taxpayers money.
Please welcome your local enumerator and help build a better List of Electors!
