The City of Mandurah encourages everyone that is eligible to make their vote count by voting in the election for their preferred local representative.
Voting in a local government election is not compulsory in Western Australia. However, all electors are strongly encouraged to vote.
The Western Australian Electoral Commission conducts the Election on behalf of the City of Mandurah and it is a postal election.
All eligible electors receive a postal voting package two to three weeks prior to polling day, depending on the service delivery of Australia Post. The package will include a list of candidates, ballot papers, instructions on how to vote and a declaration.
The next election will be held on Saturday 23 October 2023 and run by the Western Australian Electoral Commission (WAEC).
