How much advertising you can do depends on how much you can afford, so consider this when budgeting for your campaign. Remember, it’s a competitive environment and you may be competing against sitting councillors who are well known to the media and the local community .
Election advertisements and how to vote material must not be misleading to voters, or to suggest a link with a particular political party unless that link actually exists.
And all election material distributed on election day must have been pre-registered with Electoral Commission NSW. It’s wise to submit this material as early as possible to ensure it is properly reviewed and approved before use. The link to the Registration of Electoral Material system will appear here from Nomination Day.
Advertisements placed in newspapers require the details of the name and address of the person authorising the material, but not the details of the printer.
