Political Donations and Electoral Expenditure
If you are engaged, or intend to engage, in campaign fundraising you may have legal obligations and responsibilities under the Election Funding, Expenditure and Disclosures Act 1981.
Every person intending to contest an election must register as a candidate and appoint an official agent before accepting a gift (including a political donation) or making a payment for electoral expenditure.
Candidate Information Seminars on Election Campaign Laws
Are you thinking of being a candidate?
You should attend a free candidate information seminar conducted by the Election Funding Authority (EFA).
As a candidate nominated for an election you will have obligations and responsibilities under law. Even if you have been a candidate in the past or are a seeking re-election, you should attend.
The seminar will cover a range of topics including accepting political donations, public funding for election campaigns and the management and disclosure of campaign finances. The seminars will take place across New South Wales. Pre-registration is not required.
