Local Government Victoria and the Department of Health and Human Services have released updated Safe Campaign Guidelines for the October Local Government elections, reflecting the roadmap to reopening announced by the State Government on Sunday 6 September.

With separate advice for candidates in regional Victoria and Melbourne, the Safe Campaign Guidelines - September 2020 will ensure candidates can access advice on permitted campaign activity as it applies to their area.

 A key change in the updated guidelines will see letterboxing and billboarding allowed in  Melbourne from 11.59pm on 13 September under strict conditions.
