Election day advertising

Like all other New Zealanders, State servants must follow the rules that apply to the public and political parties on election day and during the advance voting period.  

Political advertising is banned on election day. The Electoral Act 1993 prohibits any activity on election day that may interfere with or influence voters, including marches, speeches or public statements. You must not post political messages, including messages about referendum options, or share political content, if it breaches the ban on political advertising on social media.
