Electoral activities and signage

An election sign is a notice on public display which encourages a person to vote for a particular political candidate or gives information or instructions in a written or symbolic form for a candidate or party in the election, and that complies with the requirements of section 187 of the Electoral Act 1907 – “Authorisation of Election Campaign Material” in regard to the authorisation of electoral signage.

Guidelines for Election Signs

All candidates are required to obtain the approval of the City to place or erect an election sign on Council property. For further information the City has an electoral activities and signage policy.

Information on what must be included in electoral advertising and publications is provided in the Western Australian Electoral Commission's Guide for Candidates.
