Registers

For each State and local government election the NSWEC maintains the following registers:

  • Register of Candidates
  • Register of Third-party Campaigners

Registered candidates and groups are included on the Register of Candidates. Registered third-party campaigners are included on the Register of Third-party Campaigners.

The registers are available for public inspection. To inspect a register contact us.

When a candidate or group is registered, their details are entered into the Register of Candidates for a specific election. The NSWEC can include in the register, the platform or objectives of the candidate or group, if requested.

If a candidate changes any of the following details, the NSWEC must be notified in writing within 30 days:

  • full name;
