Vote in Your Local Elections

June 09, 2019

Local governments have a huge impact on how businesses in the housing industry operate. 

Did you know that representatives of businesses can be registered to vote in the local government area the business is based? Registering and voting in local government elections could help achieve better outcomes for the community and industry. 

The next local government elections will be held on 19 October 2019, so now is the perfect time to register to vote. 

All residents in a local government district who are enrolled on the State Electoral Roll are automatically enrolled on the corresponding local government roll. People who own or occupy property within a local government district can apply to their local government to be included on the roll as an owner/occupier, as long as they are eligible electors. A body corporate may apply to have up to two eligible electors to be included on the owner/occupier roll.
