Enrolling to vote in Council elections

Note: Enrolment for the 2018 council elections closed at 5pm on Friday 10 August 2018.   The next general council elections will be held in 2022.

Enrolling to vote

The voters’ roll for council elections consists of two components – (1) the House of Assembly (State) roll, and (2) the council supplementary roll.

Persons on the House of Assembly roll automatically receive a voting pack in the mail.

To check if your residential and postal details are up to date on the State (House of Assembly) electoral roll click here.

If you are not enrolled on the House of Assembly roll you may still be eligible to register on the council supplementary roll if:

  • You have been resident at your current address for one month and are not on the State Electoral Roll
  • You are a sole owner/occupier of rateable property
  • You are NOT an Australian Citizen but you have been a resident at your current address for one month
  • You are a landlord for rateable property
  • You are an organisation/business owner or occupier of rateable property
  • You are a group of owners or occupiers of rateable property

As required by Legislation, Council's supplementary roll is purged on 1 January of every election year. All landlords, business lessees and resident non-Australian citizens are removed from the council voters roll and must re-enrol each election year to be able to vote.
