Election advertising blackout begins tonight

Staff Writer

The ACMA have released a reminder to TV and radio stations regarding the election blackout that begins tonight at midnight.

The Election Guidelines state :-

Blackout period for election advertising

Clause 3A of Schedule 2 to the Broadcasting Services Act requires that a broadcaster must not broadcast an election advertisement from the end of the Wednesday before the polling day until the close of the poll on polling day, where an election is to be held in an area which relates to a licence area, or an area where a broadcast can normally be received. This only applies for elections to a Parliament.
