If you are a registered party agent of a political party, you are not required to notify us within 30 days of any changes to your registered details. However, for communication purposes it is important that you notify the NSW Electoral Commission. You can follow the steps in this user guide to update these details in Funding and disclosure online.

When we are notified of changes to registered details, unless we think there is an error, we will update your details on the applicable public register.

If your contact details change, for example your phone number or email address, follow the steps outlined in the user guide Managing access and adding additional users to update them. You should always keep these details up to date in Funding and disclosure online so we can communicate with you and let you know when you need to undertake certain tasks to comply with electoral laws.
