Rules for election signs

The elections sign rules are set in the new Auckland Transport and Auckland Council Signs Bylaw 2022.

Changes to election sign sites - July 2022

Auckland Transport has recently removed some sites from the list of approved election sign sites. This can happen when a site on the list is no longer appropriate for election signs – for example, a site on a park may now have a playground on it.

Check the updated list of approved election sign sites on the Auckland Transport website.

You can read about the signs bylaw changes on the Auckland Council website and see the list of approved sites for public election signs on the Auckland Transport (AT) website.

There are four types of sites for election signs:

  • Private land - Signs on private land
  • Public road reserve - Signs on approved sites on public land associated with roads (road reserves)
  • Public land - Signs on approved public land, for example, local parks
  • Sign on a vehicle or trailer.

You will find the rules for displaying election signs at these locations in clause 17 of the bylaw.

Contact us for general enquiries or to report a problem regarding this bylaw.
