Council election information online

By Corowa Free Press

Victorians unsure which local council election they must vote in can quickly and easily check using the ‘Find My Council’ feature, launched on the Victorian Electoral Commission’s website today.

Elections for all councils in Victoria will take place in October, except for Casey City Council, South Gippsland Shire Council and Whittlesea City Council.

“Suburban and council boundaries don’t always match up,” Electoral Commissioner Warwick Gately explained.

“Using Find My Council, voters can quickly look up the council that covers their enrolled address, and from there go to information specific to their area.

“Find My Council puts you one click away from finding out about voting deadlines, the candidates who have nominated in your area, and when the time comes, the results for your council’s election,” Mr Gately said.  

Some councils have been the subject of boundary or electoral structure changes. Details of these new structures are also available on the VEC website and the interactive map.
