Local Government elections are held every four years and the Wyndham City General Election will take place on 24 October 2020.
Over the coming year we will be providing information about becoming a Wyndham City Councillor and how to vote in the 2020 Election.
Four Councillors will be elected to represent the Harrison Ward, four Councillors will be elected to represent the Chaffey Ward and three Councillors will be elected to represent the Iramoo Ward.
A person may stand as a candidate if enrolled or are entitled to be enrolled on the voters roll for any Wyndham Ward. Once elected, a person must retain their entitlement to be enrolled to be able to continue as a Councillor.
Council's Election Period Policy 2019 is a requirement of section 93B of the Local Government Act 1989 (‘the Act’) and has been developed to ensure that Wyndham City Council’s local general elections to be held on Saturday, 24 October 2020, and subsequent elections, are conducted in a manner that is ethical, fair and equitable and are publicly perceived as such. You can read this Policy here.
