Funding, expenditure and disclosure FAQ

Updated 6 May 2016

Changes to the electoral campaign finance laws relating to ACT Legislative Assembly elections took effect on 1 July 2012. These changes imposed new restrictions on electoral funding and expenditure and introduced new disclosure requirements for political entities in the ACT.

Further information can be found in the handbooks provided on this website or by contacting Elections ACT directly.

While this FAQ provides an overview of the funding, expenditure and disclosure requirements imposed on political entities in the ACT, it should not be regarded as a substitute for the law on any of the topics addressed. Individuals and organisations are advised to obtain a copy of the Electoral Act 1992 from www.legislation.act.gov.au and seek their own legal advice if necessary.
