2018 Council Elections

Did you recently receive a voting pack in the post?

This is because the 2018 Council Elections are currently underway. The Elections are being conducted entirely by post. 

Voting in the SA Council Elections is not compulsory. 

Requirements have been fulfilled that you were issued a voting pack, you are not legally obliged to return it. 

However, if would like to participate and you have not already returned your ballot pack, the ballot packs are due by 5pm tomorrow, Friday 9th November 2018.

Unfortunately at this late stage if you have not already received your pack, it is too late to request one.

At this stage, there may also be no guarantee that if you pop it in the post it will reach the destination in time.

You are able to drop your ballot pack into your local council office by 5pm.
