The electoral process

Local Government elections and by-elections are conducted in a legal environment in accordance with the provisions of the NSW Local Government 1993 and the Local Government (General) Regulation 2021.

The NSW Electoral Commission (NSWEC) is responsible for the conduct of all Local Government elections to ensure that the elections are conducted independently and impartially. 

An independent Returning Officer is appointed by the NSWEC to each council area to conduct the election on behalf of and under the direction of the Electoral Commissioner.

The Electoral Commissioner appoints the polling places for council elections and the Returning Officer appoints the election officials.

Each council is required by law to meet the costs of the conduct of its election. The NSWEC works with each council to establish agreed service levels.
