Local Government Election Information Sessions

WAEC co-hosts candidate Info Sessions with various councils. The Info Sessions cover everything candidates need to know from how to nominate to the disclosure of electoral gifts. We recommend any elector interested in being a candidate attend. See councils, times, dates and locations listed below – please note some times, dates and locations are yet to be confirmed. Check back here for updates.

The Office of Multicultural Interests (OMI) is also hosting an information session encouraging people from culturally and linguistically diverse (CaLD) backgrounds to nominate for council. See further information here.
