Photo: Hey social media fans! Some of you have been asking the deal about social media on election day. So we threw this together as a simple guide. If you want the full official line it's at http://www.elections.org.nz/parties-candidates/all-participants/use-social-media (the bits you'll want are towards the bottom of the page). Cool? Cool! Great if you could share this around too. Thanks – OG.

On Election Day:

On election day (from midnight on 19 September until 7pm on 20 September) there is a general prohibition of the publication of any statement that is likely to influence which candidate or party a person should, or should not, vote for. 

Election advertising does not have to be removed from social media so long as:

the material was published before election day

the material is only made available to people who voluntarily access it, and

no advertisements promoting the page or site are published on election day.  

If you use social media, do not post messages on election day that could breach these rules.  The Commission recommends candidates and parties temporarily deactivate their Facebook campaign pages to avoid the risk of supporters committing an offence by posting on your page.  For other forms of social media where others can post comments the Commission recommends that where possible security settings are changed so that other people cannot post messages before 7pm on election day. 

Posts on social media that are not connected in any way with the election can of course be posted on election day. 

I am on call to take people to a polling booth and other get out the vote activity so will put all comments in moderation until 7pm to ensure nothing which might breach the above prohibition is posted as a comment.
