When Should I Complain?
Campaigning in public places
The Act does:
- provide candidates or their representatives with the right to campaign in a public place — including any commercial, business, cultural, historical, educational, religious, governmental, entertainment or recreational space — when the place is open without charge to members of the public. It is an offence for the person in control of the public place to refuse to allow a candidate or their representatives to campaign there.
Exceptions apply to circumstances where campaigning would be disruptive (eg. during a religious service or outdoor performance).
