Eligibility to vote in Local Government elections
A person is eligible to vote if they are 18 years old, Australian citizens, ordinarily reside in Western Australia and are enrolled to vote.
Persons enrolled to vote on the State electoral roll are automatically enrolled to vote in local government elections. To check or update your enrolment details, visit the Western Australian Electoral Commission’s website.
Eligible voters who own or occupy property within a local government district, can apply to their local government to be added to the Owner Occupier Roll.
A claim to be added to the Owner Occupier Roll must be completed on an Enrolment Eligibility Claim Form and submitted to the Chief Executive Officer of the local government who will decide the claim.
