Under the Manitoba Elections Act, the general election is to be held on the first Tuesday of October in the fourth calendar year, following the previous election. As the last election was held in 2016, that date would be October 6, 2020. However, the act also provides that if, as of January 1 of the election year, the election period would overlap with a federal election period, the provincial election is to be postponed until the third Tuesday of the following April.
In accordance with the law, Manitoba's electoral boundaries are reviewed every 10 years and this process is scheduled to complete at the end of 2018 with the 2020 elections being fought on new boundaries.
