About Elections DPS

Brief Overview

Elections DPS is an independent and politically impartial agency. We administer elections and referenda and are responsible for maintaining the democratic process of decision-making for matters concerning the Daily Publications Society. Elections DPS is here to ensure that elections are conducted legitimately, within the scope of the electoral by-laws, and that this process is open and transparent.
