Free comprehensive guide to election laws

I have produced a free eBook to help journalists and publishers through the election legal minefield.

It covers every law that could be a problem in local election coverage, including:

  • user generated comments on message boards
  • reporting racist parties
  • rules that apply to covering polling stations, exit polls and election counts
  • election night access and facilities
  • copyright
  • broadcasting restrictions

There are also sections explaining everything from calculating swings to election procedures.

You can download the eBook here
