Who can vote at local government elections
Are you on the State electoral roll?
If you are currently on the electoral roll you are automatically on the Local Government roll for the municipal area (council) in which your enrolled address is located.
If you are eligible to be on the electoral roll but are not correctly enrolled, you can:
- fill out this electoral enrolment form,
- get an enrolment form from any post office, or
- ring 1800 801 701 and we can mail it to you.
To be enrolled correctly for the 2011 Local Government elections we need to have received your completed enrolment form before 6pm Thursday 15 September 2011.
What if I have a shack or a shop—or if I’m not an Australian citizen?
You are also eligible to be on the Local Government roll if:
- you own or occupy land in a municipal area but you are not eligible to be on the electoral roll for that area, or
- you are the nominated representative of a corporate body which owns or occupies land in the municipal area.
To enrol under these special provisions you need to complete the appropriate enrolment form. To obtain a copy of these enrolment forms you can:
- print the linked owner/occupier enrolment form or corporate body enrolment form,
- get the appropriate enrolment form from your local Council, or
- ring 1800 801 701 and we can mail the appropriate enrolment form to you.
To be enrolled under these special provisions for the 2011 Local Government elections you need to ensure that the General Manager for the Council in which you are enrolling has your completed enrolment form before 6pm Thursday 15 September 2011.
