Budstikka (The Bidding Stick), prior to 2004 known as Asker og Bærum Budstikke, is a daily local newspaper published out of Billingstad in Asker, Norway. It covers the municipalities of Asker and Bærum, and is the only newspaper issued in the area.
The newspaper was founded in 1898 by book printer Jørgen Chr. Kanitz. Its political alignment was with the Conservative Party. Today it claims an "independent conservative" editorial orientation. It launched its internet edition in 2000, changed to tabloid format in 2002, and changed the name to Budstikka in 2004. Published out of Sandvika for most of its history, it moved to Billingstad in recent years.
