New Zealand’s election season has begun and the billboards are out.
Our two biggest parties – Labour and National have started putting signs up.
There are a number of different rules that political parties must follow with their signs.
Traditionally election signs have been erected for no more than nine weeks before an election.
However, following the 2017 amendment, the bylaw no longer has a set period when election signs can be erected, but they must still be taken down before the last day of voting in an election.
