The Elections Act and Education Act are used to administer processes for territorial general elections, school council elections, and school board elections.
The Electoral District Boundaries Act is used to assist the Electoral District Boundaries Commission. A commission is called upon to make proposals to the Legislative Assembly as to the boundaries, number, and names of the electoral districts of the Yukon.
It directs the Commission to take into account a set of relevant considerations:
- population rates of growth and density, demographic data, and lists of electors;
- geographical characteristics of electoral districts;
- travel patterns and communication issues; and
- public input.
The Commission is also charged with considering any special circumstances relating to the existing electoral districts.
