Information for Candidates
Candidates and groups must register with the NSW Electoral Commission (NSWEC) before accepting political donations or incurring expenditure for an election.
All candidates and groups must appoint an official agent at the time of registration and notify the NSWEC of the agent's appointment. Registering for an election is a separate process from being nominated as a candidate for an election.
Candidate and group registrations are open now!
The following will be available for candidates from June 2016:
- Candidate Information Presentation
- Candidate Handbook
- Nomination Forms
In the meantime should you have a candidate enquiry please call the NSW Electoral Commission on 1300 135 736.
Details on the Nominated Candidates for each District are available, along with their website and email addresses, if they have provided them for publication
