NSW Local Council elections will be conducted on September 9

NSW Local Council elections

Elector information campaign begins today

The elector information campaign begins today to support the NSW Local Government (Council) Elections to be held Saturday, 9 September 2017. 46* of the 128 local councils in NSW are holding elections.  All other councils (except Central Darling which is currently under administration) had their elections in September last year.

Messages will appear in press, radio and digital across NSW from Monday, 17 July and will run until election day, Saturday, 9 September.

“The first phase of the campaign urges voters to check and update their enrolment details, or enrol for the first time,” said NSW Electoral Commissioner, John Schmidt.

“We will also be running a series of messages targeting areas that are not having elections to let people know they should check to see if they need to vote. This will seek to reduce elector confusion caused by the partial elections.

“In addition, a series of statutory advertisements will be placed at a council level in newspapers where elections are being held. The first message, calling for nominations, will begin appearing this week”.

Nominations for councillor and mayor open Monday, 31 July. Candidates will then have until noon on Wednesday, 9 August to nominate.
