Electoral Commission guidance on the Holyrood elections

06 Oct 2015

The Electoral Commission has published guidance to help non-party campaigners understand and comply with the campaign rules at the May 2016 Scottish Parliament election.

All individuals and groups, including charities, that intend to spend more than £10,000 on regulated campaign activity at the Scottish Parliament election between 5 January and 5 May 2016, will need to register with the Electoral Commission.

If your charity is planning to undertake any campaign activity in the run-up to the election in 2016 then the rules could affect you and you should read the Electoral Commission’s guidance and OSCR’s guidance.
