Essential Information for Potential Nominees
The first key date in the process is the requirement for candidates and donors to record donations made to, or by them for a candidate’s campaign. The legislation - s4.59 Local Government Act 1995 and Part 5A of the Local Government (Elections) Regulations 1997 – requires candidates and donors to make formal disclosures of gifts received and given.
Gifts worth $200 or more, or 2 or more gifts from the same donor, totalling $200 or more must be disclosed.
Although a candidate and donors do not disclose gifts until the candidate’s nomination is accepted, the legislation requires election gifts received from 16 April 2021 (being 6 months prior to election day) to be recorded and disclosed.
It is suggested that candidates and donors complete the Form for election gifts given and received, and lodge it when the Candidate’s nomination is accepted.
