Council Elections

Council Elections provide an opportunity to vote for candidates who will represent your community. You can also nominate to stand for election as a Council Member.

2018 Elections

Voting for the 2018 Council Elections has closed.
 
Electoral Commission SA will publish progressive results on their 2018 Council Elections Results page from the afternoon of Saturday 10 November.

How the Elections Work

Council Members are elected every four years. The next council elections will happen in November 2022.
 
Unlike State and Federal elections, it is not compulsory to vote in South Australian council elections and all voting is done by post. Enrolled voters receive a voting package through the mail and return their votes in a reply paid envelope.

To find out more about the elections and how the voting system works, visit the Electoral Commission SA's Council Election Fact page and the SA Local Government Association 2018 Council Elections page.

The rules for elections are set out in the Local Government (Elections) Act 1999 - an act of the South Australian Parliament.
