Are you registered to vote?

Published on 09 July 2024


The Borough of Queenscliffe Council election will be held this October. The election will be conducted entirely by post – a safe and completely secret method of voting. 

Local council general elections are held every 4 years and councillors make decisions on a range of important local issues and services, including:

· sporting and recreation facilities

· libraries and community centres

· planning and building regulations

· local roads and footpaths.

We strongly encourage all eligible voters to enrol and vote. Voting is compulsory for all enrolled voters, 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 Wednesday 7 August.

If you are an Australian citizen you can enrol, or update your enrolment, online here. 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 or you own or occupy rateable property in the Borough but do not live in the area, you can apply to become a council-enrolled voter. You are not automatically registered if you do not live in the area.

To find out more, to check your enrolment or to apply, head here by 4 pm on Wednesday 7 August.
