Rules for Political Advertising

Political advertising is any advertising that can be seen, heard or read and is promoting or opposing a political party or candidate.

Political advertising also includes advertising with respect to an issue of public policy during an election, for which one or more registered political parties or candidates may also have taken a position.

All scripts and text for political advertising must include information about who authorized the advertising. In other words, an advertisement must include a spoken or written line such as “authorized by the xyz campaign” or “this advertisement was paid for by the xyz political party.”
