Candidates & Parties

Voting isn't the only way you can make a difference in shaping Victoria.

You can also nominate as a candidate and stand for election.

Candidate Handbooks

The VEC produces Candidate Handbooks to assist candidates with the nomination process.

Handbooks are available almost three months before scheduled election events, such as State elections.

For unscheduled election events, such as by-elections, handbooks are produced as soon as possible.

Privacy and candidate information

The VEC is required to collect and disclose relevant candidate information. See Privacy at the Victorian Electoral Commission for further details.
