Resources for Candidates

A range of resources is available for people considering whether to stand for election to Council in September.

The Office of Local Government has produced the Stand for your Community candidate guide. The guide contains information about the role of an elected member of a council.

Once you decide to stand for election, there are a number of legal requirements for all candidates in NSW. Before a candidate or group of candidates can accept a political donation or make payments for electoral expenditure they must first register for the election. This page on the NSW Electoral Commission website contains information for candidates.
