Breaking the rules about advertising material
Here we go again.
Another election, and it seems that they are all already breaking the rules regarding signs under the Electoral Act.
There are particular requirements for advertising material, including signs and posters under the Election Act (Section 184).
Public Land or Buildings - Advertising material cannot be displayed on or within land or buildings occupied, used by, or under the control or management of the Crown, NSW Government agencies, or a Council.
Signage Location, Content and Display Period requirements - Signage must be a maximum of 0.8 square metres in area and can only be displayed ... five weeks immediately preceding the day on which the election is held.
I will await with interest to see if any of them will follow the rules, if it is good enough for local council elections then they should be held to a higher standard.
I know it seems petty but rules are rules and I had to abide by them last council election.
