The Solomon Islands Electoral Commission is warning all potential election candidates and their agents not to campaign before the official election date has been announced.
The commission said it was aware of illegal campaign activities being carried out in communities under the guise of awareness talks.
It warned that any person who engaged in campaign activity outside the official campaign period was commiting an offence.
Offenders risk a fine of almost $USD2495 two years imprisonment, or both.
The legal campaign period starts on the day the Governor General proclaims the election date and ends 24 hours before the polling day.
The electoral commission is urging people to report any illegal campaign activities in their electorate.
