All wagers will be determined using the official result as declared by the local Electoral Commission or a similar official body.
The official electoral body that will determine results will be specified for individual political wagers.
Where no official result from an Electoral Commission or similar official body is available, the result will be determined by using information from independent sources.

Canadian Politics: For the purposes of the federal election, the following colloquialisms apply:
If we provide a stipulation that a candidate "must announce", that means there will only be action if that candidate officially announces he will run for that office.
