Election funding may be payable in relation to registered political parties, candidates and groups. The election funding is payable in relation to any candidate who received more than 4% of the total first preference votes cast in the election. Election funding of $10,000 (as indexed) is paid as soon as practicable 20 days after the polling day for the election or elections. However, a claim must be made for election funding if more than that amount is to be paid.
