The Boroondara City Council election will be held this October.

The Victorian Electoral Commission is preparing to deliver local council elections during the extraordinary circumstances of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Elections will be conducted entirely by post – a safe and completely secret method of voting.

We strongly encourage all eligible voters to enrol and vote. Voting is compulsory for Australian citizens aged 18 years or older, and you may be fined if you don’t vote.

Make sure you’ve enrolled or checked your enrolment details are correct by the close of roll, which is 4 pm on Friday 28 August.

If you are an Australian citizen you can enrol, or update your enrolment, online at vec.vic.gov.au/enrolment or by calling 1300 805 478. You can register for VoterAlert at the same time, a free SMS and email reminder service.

If you’re not an Australian citizen but pay rates to council, own rateable property in the City of Boroondara but do not live in the area, or are a director or company secretary of a corporation that pays rates to council and have no other voting entitlements for this council, you can apply to become a council-enrolled voter. To find out more and to apply, contact us on 9278 4470 by 4 pm on Friday 28 August.
