Official Results

Anyone intending to nominate as a candidate for future elections must complete a free online induction course, delivered by the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries. 

Please refer toInduction for prospective candidates | DLGSC. 

The course gives prospective candidates a basic understanding of the role of a councillor before nominations open. Completion of the course is a requirement for eligibility to nominate.

The WAEC Nomination Builder steps candidates through the online nomination process.

Your application must include:

  • completed nomination form and signed declaration
  • candidate profile;
  • deposit of $100; and
  • recent head shot no larger than a passport photo (optional).

More information can be found on the Western Australian Electoral Commission Website.

 

The next local government election at the Town of Mosman Park is scheduled for October 2025.

The preferential voting method is the same method used in State and Federal elections. Optional preferential voting means voters may opt to mark only one square on the ballot paper, or more, when casting a vote.                                                                                                                                               

The votes are counted in rounds, starting with counting all first choices.If one candidate gets more than half of the votes in the first round, they are declared a winner. If no candidates get a majority, the candidate with the least votes is eliminated, and their votes are transferred to the second choice of those voters.

This process continues until one candidate gets more than half of the votes, and are declared a winner.Preferential voting is considered a fairer system as it ensures that the winner has the support of the majority of voters.  

Please note, Rolls for the Extraordinary Election 2024 closed on 18 January at 5:00pm.

The Western Australian Electoral Commission will post voting packages to all eligible electors prior to polling day. These are typically sent out 2-3 weeks prior to election day. Arrival in letterboxes will depend on Australia Post delivery service times.

The Returning Officer, who conducts Town of Mosman Park local government elections, must receive your fully completed voting package before 4pm on polling day. If you do not think that your postal voting package can be returned by post in time, you can deliver it by hand to the Town’s Administration Building before 4pm on polling day.

 

Whilst the local government elections voting method is by post, on election day the Administration building at the Town of Mosman Park will still be open from 8.00am until 6.00pm on election day to re-issue election voting packs, if these have been misplaced or were not received in the post.
