2018 Council Elections

Enrolling to Vote

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

If you are on the House of Assembly roll in this district, you will automatically receive a voting pack mailed to your registered address.

If you have moved house or changed your name, you need to complete a new enrolment form, available at your local Post Office, Council Office or Electoral Commission of SA

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

  • You have been a 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

However if you are a landlord, business lessee or resident non-Australian citizen and you wish to vote in Council elections you must enrol by completing an enrolment form, available here:

Form 1   Eligibility for Natural Person: Resident, Sole Owner or Sole Occupier (non-residential tenant)

Form 2   Eligibility by a Business or Organisation (i.e. a body corporate)

Form 3    Eligibility by a Group Owners or Group Occupiers

Enrolment for the 2018 council elections closes at 5pm on Friday 10 August 2018. 

Nominating for a Position on Council

If you are eligible to vote in your local council elections, you are probably also eligible to stand for a position on council.

With very few exceptions (such as being an undischarged bankrupt, or being disqualified from holding office by a court order), you can nominate for a position on council regardless of qualifications, religion, race, gender, experience or profession.

In fact, councils actively encourage nominations from people from diverse backgrounds to ensure that a wide range of views are being represented. The Local Government Association and many councils run information sessions for potential candidates.

Nomination Process

Nominations for the 2018 local government elections open Tuesday 4 September 2018 and close Tuesday 18 September 2018 at 12 noon. During this time, you must complete and lodge a nomination form which is available from your Council.

You will also be asked to lodge a 150-word candidate profile and a ‘head shoulders’ photograph which will be published on a candidates’ website.

You should refer to the 2018 candidate resources for more information about the nomination process and requirements once they become available in July 2018.

For more information please contact Tanya Mitchell on 8680 2002 or admin@wudinna.sa,gov.au
