Wakefield Regional Council


Print Page


If you are eligible to vote in the Wakefield Regional Council election, you are probably also eligible to stand for a position on Council.

With very few exceptions (such as being an undischarged bankrupt, or being disqualified from holding office by a court order), you can nominate for a position on council regardless of qualifications, religion, race, gender, experience or profession.

In fact, we actively encourage nominations from people from diverse backgrounds to ensure that a wide range of views are being represented.

Nominations for council elections open on Tuesday 4 September and close 12noon Tuesday 18 September 2018.

The Local Government Assoication hosts ‘Make a Difference- Nominate for Council’ sessions across the state.
