CLARENCE Valley residents keen to try their hand at politics will have to travel to Lismore or Coffs Harbour for candidate information seminars.

The NSW Election Funding Authority will hold a series of information sessions for potential state election candidates, looking to stand at the next election.

The seminars start on August 11, and will be held in Lismore on September 9 and Coffs Harbour on September 10.

They will cover a range of topics including political donations, electoral expenditure, public funding for election campaigns and the management and disclosure of campaign finances.

Electoral Commissioner Colin Barry said interested parties would greatly benefit from the sessions.

"Anyone engaged, or intending to engage, in campaign fundraising may already have legal obligations and responsibilities under the Election Funding, Expenditure and Disclosures Act, 1981," Mr Barry said.

"If you are intending to stand as a candidate at the election you will have obligations and responsibilities under law."

Mr Barry said those who had previously been a candidate or were seeking re-election should also attend the seminar.
