Nominate for Council and make a difference


Nominations for the 2018 Local Government Elections open on Tuesday 4 September 2018 and close Tuesday 18 September 2018 at 12pm.  


Who can nominate for council

You can nominate for a position on council regardless of qualifications, religion, race, gender, experience or profession. 

In fact, councils encourage nominations by people from diverse backgrounds to ensure that a wide range of views are being represented.

In South Australia there are around 700 council members who are as diverse as the reasons that motivated them to stand for election.
