Council elections 2020
Have you thought about being a Councillor?
Being a Councillor is a rewarding challenge – one which requires commitment, responsibility and accountability.
Many people in our local communities provide strong and strategic leadership. Local government can perform at its peak and make informed decisions when communities are represented by a diverse group of leaders. Diversity comes in many forms including backgrounds, experiences, culture, age and gender.
There are some eligibility requirements; you need to be an Australian citizen, at least 18 years of age on election day and enrolled to vote in the municipality you plan to stand in.
The Council elections take place in October this year.
If you want to be involved in the future of your community, and are willing to learn and participate, then you should explore what it takes to be a Councillor.
The City is hosting a series of information sessions in the lead up to October.
Registration to attend each session is not essential, however we would encourage you to register your details by completing the online registration form prior to each session.
