About Local Government elections

Local government ordinary elections are held on the third Saturday in October every two years. The next state-wide ordinary elections are scheduled for Saturday 21 October 2023.

Councillors are elected for a terms of four years. Elections are held every two years for half of the council, and candidates are elected using the first-past-the-post voting system. If a vacancy occurs within a term, an extraordinary election is held.

The Shire has previously elected to conduct local government elections as a postal vote election and are likely to continue this practice for future elections.

The Electoral Commissioner is responsible for conducting all local government postal elections in Western Australia and can also conduct voting in person elections on request under the Local Government Act 1995. By making the Electoral Commissioner responsible for these elections, the local governments concerned ensure that elections are conducted independently and with impartiality.

How to nominate as a candidate

Eligible electors who wish to run as a candidate at their local government election must nominate and be registered as a voter in the Shire of Mundaring.

You must complete a valid nomination application and present it to the Returning Officer before nominations close.
