Local Government Elections

Local government ordinary elections are held on the third Saturday in October every two years.

Councillors are elected for terms of four years in Western Australia. 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 next council elections will be held in 2021.
