Councils are part of the democratic framework of Australia. The community elects their Council Members every four years.

The next Council General Elections will be held in November 2022

Unlike State and Federal elections, it is not compulsory to vote in South Australian council elections.

Another important difference from State and Federal elections is that all voting in council elections is done by post.  Enrolled voters receive a voting package through the mail and return their votes in a reply paid envelope.


Supplementary Elections

Close of Roll for Supplementary Election

Due to the resignation of a member of the council, a supplementary election will be necessary to fill the vacancy of Area Councillor.

The voters roll for this supplementary election will close at 5.00pm on Friday 30 August 2019.

You are entitled to vote in the election if you are on the State electoral roll.  If you have recently turned 18 or changed your residential or postal address you must complete an electoral enrolment form, available from post offices or online at www.ecsa.sa.gov.au

If you are not eligible to enrol on the State electoral roll you may still be entitled to enrol to vote if you own or occupy a property. Contact the council to find out how.


Nominations to fill the vacancy will open on Thursday 26 September 2019 and will be received until 12 noon on Thursday 10 October 2019.

The election will be conducted entirely by post with the return of ballot material to reach the Returning Officer no later than 12 noon on Monday 11 November 2019.
