Recall petition campaigners

On this page, you will find guidance and information for individuals and organisations that campaign for the success or failure of a recall petition. We call these individuals and organisations recall petition campaigners.

There are rules recall petition campaigners must follow on campaign spending, donations and reporting.

Our guidance is to help recall petition campaigners comply with the rules. You do not have to follow this guidance but if you do, you will normally be doing enough to comply with the law.


Spending and donations

This part covers:

  • How much you can spend
  • The activities covered by the rules
  • Checking permissibility
  • Recording and reporting
  • Working together with other campaigners
