Local government extraordinary elections

The Commission is presently conducting a number of extraordinary postal elections for local governments in both regional WA and the Perth metro area.

A number of circumstances can result in an extraordinary election. The most common reasons include - a sitting Councillor being elected to the position of Mayor or Shire President; a Councillor passing away or resigning; and a vacancy not being filled at the preceding ordinary elections.
