Local Government elections

The Moyne Shire Council election will be held this October.

The election will be conducted entirely by post – a safe and completely secret method of voting.

Local council general elections are held every four years and councillors make decisions on a range of important local issues and services, including:

  • maternal health and childcare
  • sporting and recreation facilities
  • libraries and community centres
  • animal registrations
  • rubbish and recycling
  • planning and building regulations
  • local roads and footpaths.

We strongly encourage all eligible voters to vote this October. Voting is compulsory for all enrolled voters; you may be fined if you don’t vote.

The Victorian Electoral Commission (VEC) conduct elections on behalf of all Victorian councils.

Detailed and up to date information about how to enrol, vote, become a candidate (opens in new window), is available on the VEC website, or call the VEC on 131 832.
