Some changes have been made to the nomination period ahead of the 2018 Municipal Election. Durham Region candidates must now wait until May to announce their intentions to run for office. This shortens the campaign period to May 1-October 22. In addition, the deadline to file a nomination has been pushed back to July 27. There is also a new requirement for anyone wishing to run for an office on council; they must submit the signatures of 25 voters who support their nomination. This requirement does not apply to candidates running for school board trustee positions.
