During the election period, we received more than 220 complaints related to online or electronic material (such as social media, website or email).
Although the official election period ended on 25 October, we continue to receive and accept election-related complaints. However, we can no longer accept complaints related to pre-election matters such as incorrect social media authorisations or campaign signage.
Many recent enquiries have involved campaign donation returns. All councils (except those who did not hold elections) were due to publish a summary of campaign donations on their website by 17 December 2020.
We are compiling a full elections report which will be presented to the Attorney-General and Minister for Local Government before being made public.
