Election Spending

Election expenses and donations relating to elections must be declared by local government candidates.
Each candidate is required to submit a form which details their election expenses and donations. Returns are to be kept for seven years and then disposed of.
Section 112F of the Local Electoral Act 2001 states that the returns must be made available for public inspection electronically.
