Local Government Candidate Induction Training

All persons wishing to nominate as a candidate at the forthcoming local government elections are required to have first successfully completed the online candidate induction module. Completing the module is mandatory irrespective of whether an individual is a first time candidate or a long standing councillor.

The induction module is available via the Department of Local Government, Sport & Cultural Industries website. The Department will be maintaining a register of those who have completed the induction.

The nominations period opens Thursday 5 September and closes at 4.00pm Thursday 12 September.

Prospective candidates who will be absent during this period are able to give written approval to someone else to lodge their nomination on their behalf with the Returning Officer. They must however have completed and signed the nomination form and profile. 

Use the Commission’s Nomination Builder to electronically complete the nomination form and candidate profile.
