Nominating as a candidate for election

Most people who are on the council voters roll can stand for election.

Becoming a councillor is one of the most direct ways that you can influence decisions that affect the quality of life in your local area.

If you are interested in representing the people of your community on council, the Electoral Commission of SA and the LGA(SA) provide a range of resources to help you understand the role and responsibilities of being a councillor. The updated resources will be available in early 2018, however, you can find information from the 2014 elections here [https://www.lga.sa.gov.au/page.aspx?u=6867].

IT IS IMPORTANT TO NOTE that there may be changes to this information as a result of pending changes to the Local Government Act (1999) and the Local Government Elections Act (1999). The 2014 information should be read for background information only.

The LGA and some local councils will also run information seminars for candidates during July and August, 2018. Details will be available on the LGA website.
