Voting in Elections

How do I vote in the elections?

While not compulsory, all electors are strongly encouraged to vote!

All electors will receive a postal voting package in the mail that includes:

  • a ballot paper and candidates’ statements for Councillor and/or Mayor (every four years)
  • an envelope for the ballot papers
  • a return paid envelope
  • a brochure from the electoral commission detailing how to vote.

As part of State Government reforms, there will be a change from first-past-the-post system of voting to optional preferential voting (OPV) for the October 2023 local government elections.

For more information, view the "Voting in the October 2023 Poster" or the video below.
