Contributions to costs

Depending on the election (or by-election) SAP may require funding from candidates to help cover costs, including nomination fees. Contributions will differ depending on the election, nomination fee and the level of campaign support and materials requested by the candidate. If you are a 'passive' candidate we still ask that you make a tax-deductible donation for the nomination fee.

Candidates that achieve a primary vote of 4 per cent or more can have their nomination fee refunded.
