The Electoral Commission of Queensland (ECQ) is responsible for administering and enforcing the Electoral Act 1992, which includes penalties that may apply to registered political parties, associated entities and State candidates, third parties, publishers and broadcasters who breach their obligations. Note these stakeholders may also be subject to laws enforced by other government agencies. This fact sheet is intended to provide information only in relation to those laws administered by the ECQ.
