Update - Election advertising blackout periods
The election advertising blackout only applies to broadcasters. It does not include online services and print media.
The ACMA may update blackout period information from time-to-time for federal, state, territory elections and federal by-elections but for state by-elections and local government elections, consult your state or territory electoral commission.
