The EFA maintains copies the registers of candidates, party and official agents and third-party campaigners. These registers are available for public inspection by contacting us on 1300 022 011.
The Register of Candidates lists the details of those candidates who have registered with the EFA for an election. Only those candidates who are registered with the EFA for an election are permitted to accept political donations and (in the case of State elections) are eligible to receive an election funding payment after the election (if all other necessary criteria are met).
The Register of Official Agents lists the details of those persons who have been appointed as an official agent by candidates or groups for an election. In the case of state elections, candidates and groups who are members of a registered political party are not required to appoint an official agent. Their agent is the party agent of the party.
The Register of Party Agents lists the details of those persons who have been appointed as the party agent of a political party.
