It’s time for all eligible residents and ratepayers to enrol for the upcoming Boroondara City Council elections.

Electoral Commissioner Warwick Gately has issued a call ahead of the enrolment deadline:

"You must be enrolled by 4pm Friday 26 August 2016 to have your say - if you’re 18 or over and you live or pay rates in Boroondara City Council, check your enrolment now."

Australian citizens living within the City of Boroondara who have recently turned 18 or changed their address, can enrol or update their details on the Victorian Electoral Commission website.

Paper enrolment forms are also available at any Australia Post or Australian Electoral Commission office.

Anyone on the State electoral roll for their current address and non-resident property owners are automatically enrolled for the elections.

There are also additional enrolment categories for occupiers, company nominees and non-Australian citizens who pay rates for an address in the City of Boroondara. People in these categories can apply directly to council to enrol, by calling 9278 4470.

Further information on enrolment is available by calling 1300 805 478 or on the Victorian Electoral Commission website, where voters can also sign up to the free Vic Election Alerts service to be sent important election reminders by text and email.
