LOCAL government elections have concluded for another two years, but do not throw away the campaign material just yet.

The State Library is accepting printed posters, flyers, how-to-vote cards, stickers and badges, along with electronic campaign material used by candidates and groups in the lead-up to Saturday’s count.

Chief executive Margaret Allen said election material held long-term significance. Material can be dropped off or posted to the State Library or emailed to serials@slwa.wa.gov.au.
