Are you thinking of standing for election to the Commonwealth Parliament, or assisting someone who wants to be an election candidate? You will need a clear understanding of the legislative requirements you must meet, and of your responsibilities under the law. Remember, you and your supporters can play a significant role in helping to ensure, as far as possible, that every vote cast in an election counts.
