Election Campaign Donation Returns 2020

Local government election candidates are required by law to provide a record of whether they did or didn’t receive any donations or gifts, including in-kind support, for their election campaign.

Within 40 days of Election Day, all candidates must provide the Chief Executive Officer with a completed election campaign donation return. The due date is 3 December 2020.

The return provides details of any gifts, goods or services worth $500 or more, received during the donation period for use in connection with a candidate’s election campaign. This applies to all candidates, whether elected or not, and whether they received campaign donations or not.

The ‘donation period’ is defined as the period beginning 30 days after Election Day in the previous election and ending 30 days after Election Day in the current election.

Within 14 days after the deadline for lodgement of completed campaign donation returns by candidates, summaries of each return lodged is made available on Council’s website for a period up until the entitlement date for the next general election.

The next general election is scheduled for October 2024.
