Council elections

The City’s social media pages provide general community information only. In the interests of fairness and transparency, social media pages controlled by the City must remain politically neutral.

City staff have obligations under the Local Government Act 2020 to not allow the publication of unauthorised election material or material that is reasonably likely to mislead voters.

The City will remove any comments that it considers are from or on behalf of candidate or political groups, along with any comments that include apparent campaign images/logos, slogans, hashtags or other electioneering or election matter as defined in the Act.
