Council Elections 2018



Councils are part of the democratic framework of Australia.  The community elects their council members every four years and the next general elections happen in November 2018.


Unlike State and Federal elections, it is not compulsory to vote in South Australian council elections.  However, council elections are the biggest single voluntary civic participation activity in the state with nearly 360,000 people voting in the 2014 council elections.


Another important difference from State and Federal elections is that all voting in council elections is done by post. Enrolled voters receive a voting package through the mail and return their votes in a reply paid envelope.
