Campaigning has commenced

Ballot papers, with candidate profiles, are now being printed for the 178 contested Local Government elections being held across the State. These elections have 964 candidates vying for 378 vacancies and the voting packs will be lodged with Australia Post from Friday this week. Over 1.5 million voting packs are being sent to electors.

Polling closes on 19 October but electors are encouraged to have their say and get their completed voting packs back in the mail as soon as they can.
