New electoral funding and disclosure rules in NSW from 1 July 2018

1 July 2018

On 1 July 2018 important new laws for electoral funding and disclosure begin in NSW. The new laws provide for more frequent disclosure of political donations and aim to simplify processes for electoral participants in state and local government elections. The new rules will apply to participants at the 2019 NSW State election.

If you have any questions about these or other changes, please refer to the NSW Electoral Commission website, or contact the NSW Electoral Commission on 1300 022 011 or fdc [at] elections.nsw.gov.au
