Resources for Candidates

A range of resources is available for people considering whether to stand for election to Council in September.

The Office of Local Government has produced the Stand for your Community candidate guide. The guide contains information about the role of an elected member of a council.

Once you decide to stand for election, there are a number of legal requirements for all candidates in NSW. Before a candidate or group of candidates can accept a political donation or make payments for electoral expenditure they must first register for the election. This page on the NSW Electoral Commission website contains information for candidates.


Non-Residential Electoral Roll

Did you know that if you pay rates in a different local government area to the one you live in, you are entitled to vote there in the council elections?

The non-residential electoral roll gives people who are non-resident owners, occupiers, and rate-paying lessees of rateable land an opportunity to have a say in who is elected to the council. Enrolment forms for the Warrumbungle Shire non-residential electoral roll must be submitted to Council by Monday 26 July 2021.
