Voting and enrolment information

The Vote in Local Council Postal Elections book provides information about voting and standing as a candidate in the October 2016 local council elections.

The South Gippsland Shire Council elections will be conducted by postal vote, with ballot packs distributed by the Victorian Electoral Commission (VEC) between 4 and 6 October 2016. It is important to ensure ballot responses are completed and posted back by the closing time of 6pm on Friday 21 October.

The voters roll for council elections has closed. All eligible voters are encouraged to vote. Compulsory provisions do apply and individuals may be fined if they don’t vote, or if they post their ballots after the closing time.

Contact the VEC’s 37 Bair Street Office by 12 October if you have not received a Ballot Pack or have any other concerns with your ability to vote. More information about the local government elections can be found on the Victorian Electoral Commission website.
