Voting in City of Melville local government elections

We opt to use postal voting and postal voting packages will be mailed to all eligible electors on the local government electoral roll from Wednesday, 25 September 2019. The package will include a list of candidates, ballot papers, instructions on how to vote, a declaration and a reply paid envelope.

Make sure to post in your vote as soon as possible - no later than Monday, 14 October 2019 - to ensure it will be received by the Returning Officer by 6.00pm on Election Day, Saturday 19 October 2019. Votes must be received by this time in order to be counted. If you miss the postal deadline, you can hand-deliver your vote to our Civic Centre, 10 Almondbury Road, Booragoon by 6.00pm on Election Day. There will be a ballot box in the foyer. There is no absent voting as this is a postal election.

If you lose your postal package, or you didn’t receive it, contact us and we can arrange a replacement package. Application for replacement package form must be completed and returned to the Civic Centre. Please do this as soon as possible so you don’t miss out on your chance to have your say.
