Councillor Don Palmer Providing Local Leadership & Working for You

Never Mind the upcoming state election and we will be full of that shortly as it is only 9 weeks away the more important election of I can be parochial is the November Council elections.

This blog post is important if you wish to have an influence over the results of the Council elections.

Local government elections are held every 4 years, with the next one to be held in November 2014.
If you are already on the State Electoral roll (in this Council area) to vote in State elections then you will automatically be on the Council voters roll and will receive voting papers by post.
However, if you are a landlord, business lessee or resident non-Australian citizen you will no longer be automatically included on the Council roll.  If you have been previously enrolled in that capacity, and are still eligible, you will need to re-enrol after 1 January 2014.
Enrolment for the 2014 Council elections closes at 5pm on Friday 8 August 2014.
