Information about Local Government elections, enrolling to vote, nominate and vote.

Enrolment for the 2018 Council Elections closes at 5 pm on Friday 10 August 2018.

Councils are part of the democratic framework of Australia. The community elects their council members every four years and the next general elections happen in November 2018.

The voters' roll for council elections consists of two components - the House of Assembly (State) roll, and the council supplementary roll. If you are on the House of Assembly roll you will automatically receive a voting pack mailed to your registered address. If you have moved house or changed your name, you need to complete a new enrolment form, available at your local Post Office or Electoral Commission of SA by visiting their website 

If you are not enrolled on the House of Assembly roll you may be eligible to register on the council supplementary roll.
