The ACT government is yet to charge any political parties for about 300 illegal signs seized throughout the election period.
City rangers removed and impounded 282 signs during the campaign, which officially ended at 6pm on Monday evening.
A Territory and Municipal Services spokeswoman said a fine of $220 could be issued for each sign, resulting in a potential total of $62,040.
''The administrative process associated with TAMS' investigation of infringements will be finalised next week,'' she said.
If imposed, the fines will be the first collected by the ACT government following the introduction of new legislation earlier this year.
The introduction of the Public Unleased Land Act 2013 on July 1 meant that the ACT government missed out on a potential $83,160 in infringements from the past two election campaigns.
City rangers seized 312 signs during the 2012 ACT Legislative Assembly election, while a total of 66 were impounded during the 2010 federal campaign period, the spokeswoman said.
During the recent federal election campaign period, city rangers seized a total of 125 signs belonging to the Liberal Party, leading the major party count ahead of Labor at 24 and the Greens at nine.
A total of 46 signs belonging to the Community and Public Sector Union were removed and impounded.
Another 36 belonging to the Palmer United Party and 14 to Rise Up Australia.
City rangers seized 10 signs belonging to the Drug Law Reform Australia Party, while four signs belonging to the Stable Population Party were also removed.
The Bullet Train for Australia Party, Katter's Australia Party and independent Senate candidate Emmanuel Ezekiel-Hart each had three signs seized and impounded.
The Australian Sex Party had one sign removed, while the Voluntary Euthanasia Party and Christian Democrats had two signs seized each.
