The next local government elections will be held in 2020.

At local council elections you elect people to represent you on your council. The number of councillors you elect and the municipality's electoral structure are determined by the Minister for Local Government.

Voting is important as the councillors you elect make decisions on a range of local issues. Their responsibilities include:

  • Service Delivery
  • Representation  on behalf of constituents
  • Advocacy for other levels of government
  • Policy Development
  • Law making and enforcement
  • Planning and monitoring achievement
