LOCAL GOVERNMENT ORDINARY ELECTION CLOSE OF ENROLMENTS

City of Busselton

ROLL CLOSE: 5:00 PM Friday, 27 August 2021

Residents

You are automatically enrolled to vote if you are on the State Electoral Roll as at 5:00 PM Friday, 27 August 2021. If you are not already on the State Electoral Roll and meet the eligibility criteria, or if you have changed address recently, you must complete an enrolment form.

Enrolment Forms

Electoral enrolment forms are available from the City of Busselton, all Australian Electoral Commission offices (www.aec.gov.au) or the Western Australian Electoral Commission (www.elections.wa.gov.au) and must be completed and reach a Divisional Returning Officer in Western Australia by 5:00 PM Friday, 27 August 2021.

Non-Resident Owners and Occupiers

If you are a non-resident owner or occupier of rateable property in the City of Busselton and are on the State or Commonwealth Electoral Roll, you are eligible to enrol to vote. If you are not on the State or Commonwealth Electoral Roll and own or occupy rateable property in the City of Busselton you may be eligible to enrol to vote. This applies if you were on the last electoral roll for the City of Busselton prior to May 1996 and have owned or occupied rateable property in the district continuously since this time. Please contact the City of Busselton for details. Owners of land who were on the last roll continue to retain that status until they cease to own the rateable property to which the enrolment relates.

Occupiers do not have continuous enrolment and should contact the City of Busselton to confirm their enrolment status. To be eligible to enrol as an occupier, you will need to have a right of continuous occupation under a lease, tenancy agreement or other legal instrument for at least the next three months following the date of the application to enrol.

Joint Owners and Occupiers

If a rateable property is owned or occupied by more than two people, a majority of the owners/occupiers may nominate two persons from amongst themselves who are on either the State or Commonwealth Electoral Roll, to enrol as owner/occupier electors.

Corporations

A body corporate that owns or occupies rateable property may nominate two people who are on either the State or Commonwealth Electoral Roll to enrol as owner/occupier electors.

Enrolment Forms – Non-Resident Owners and Occupiers Only

Enrolment forms can be obtained from local governments and must be lodged with the Chief Executive Officer by 5:00 PM Friday, 27 August 2021. Further information can be obtained from the City of Busselton.
