2018 State Election
On behalf of councils and the communities they serve, the Local Government Association of South Australia (LGA) is seeking commitments from all parties and candidates at the 2018 State Election that will ease the cost of living for South Australians, grow the economy and jobs, and support stronger communities.
Working together we can pursue South Australia’s uncapped potential and make our State a better place to work, live and visit.
These Guidelines operate to provide a general approval to authorise the placement or affixation of moveable signs, advertising candidates for election, on a road or onto infrastructure on a road.
A moveable sign may be placed on a road at any time without the permission of the council provided that it complies with the council’s by-laws (section 226(1) of the Local Government Act).
Signs such as corflutes that are advertising candidates for election and which do not comply with council’s by-laws, may be placed on a road without the Council’s permission provided that: the sign is related to a State or Commonwealth election and is displayed during the designated election period. For the 2018 South Australian state election this commences at 5pm on 16 February 2018 and ends at the close of polls on polling day. All signs must be removed within 48 hours of the polls closing.
