Election representatives Every party and constituency association nominating candidates is required to appoint an election representative and a deputy for each representative. In addition, constituency associations that have established a joint list are required to authorize an election representative from one of the constituency associations to function as an election representative of the joint list and another person to function as his or her deputy. An election representative of a party or a constituency association is not entitled to function as an election representative for another party or a joint list. An election representative of a constituency association is not entitled to function as an election representative for a party or a joint list other than that to which his or her constituency association belongs to, or as an election representative of another constituency association. An election representative of a party or a constituency association is not entitled to be a member or a deputy member of an electoral district committee or a central election committee of a municipality. An application, announcement or correction, as referred to in this Act, may on behalf of an election representative be given by a person authorised by the election representative in question. What is laid down in this Act regarding the party, joint list and election representative of the constituency association, applies, as appropriate, also to the deputy representative. A party is required, a minimum of 48 days prior to the polling day, to inform the electoral district committee of Helsinki of the names and contact information of the election representative and the deputy election representative of the party.
