Candidates must nominate and register!

Candidates and groups at the 2021 Local Government elections must be registered with the NSW Electoral Commission before accepting political donations or paying for electoral expenditure.

Registration as a candidate or group is a separate process to being nominated for the election to have your name printed on the ballot paper.

Being registered means you can lawfully accept political donations, fundraise, and pay for your campaign expenses.

Register as a candidate or group using the online Funding and Disclosure Form or download, complete and submit a hard copy registration form.
