Campaign expenditure

The cost to run your campaign depends on the type of activity you decide to undertake.

The amount that each candidate can spend on their campaign relates to the population of the area you are standing for. This amount should not exceed the limits which are set out in the Candidate Handbook.

If you stand for more than one position, the amount you can spend is the highest amount for one position. You cannot add positions together to allow you to spend more than the limit.

All candidates, whether elected or not, need to submit an election expenses and donations form return to the electoral office within 55 days (or 76 days if you are overseas) after the official declaration of results.
