Major Breaking Election Administration News from Canada: Canada’s Chief Election Officer Unexpectedly Resigns

The Globe and Mail offers Questions emerge as Kingsley quits Elections Canada post. For more coverage, see here. This is very troubling. Kingsley had another two years before mandatory retirement at age 65. I and others have looked to Kingley as an example of the kind of independent and fair election administrator who would be the model for U.S. jurisdictions. The possibility that he was being forced out for taking too tough a stand against the ruling administration is of great concern. This is a story I expect to follow as it unfolds.
