Caretaker 2019

Arrangements for during an election period.

information you should know during an election period.

In the period preceding an election for the House of Representatives and the Senate, the Australian Government assumes a caretaker role.

During this time it is important that Australian Government resources are not used to communicate political material.

As such, the website will be moderated from the time the House of Representatives and the Senate is dissolved, until after the outcome of the election is known (or if a new government is elected, when that government is sworn in), to ensure that political material is not placed on the site.

We will continue to manage our website as per the content policy.

Cheers, the team at
