Elections

Councils are part of the democratic framework of Australia and the community gets the chance to elect its Council Members every four years.

Council elections provide an opportunity to vote for candidates who will represent your community. You can also nominate to stand for election as a Council Member.

Unlike State and Federal elections it is not compulsory to vote in South Australian council elections and all voting is done by post. Enrolled voters receive a voting package through the mail and return their votes in a reply paid envelop.

The rules for the elections are set out in the Local Government (Elections) Act 1999 an act of the South Australian Parliament.

If you have any questions about enrolling, nominating or voting in the Council elections please contact David Beaton, Chief Executive Officer;  email: council@lwdc.sa.gov.au  or telephone: 8584 8000.
