If you are eligible to vote in your local council elections, you are probably also eligible to stand for a position on council. With very few exceptions (such as being an undischarged bankrupt, or being disqualified from holding office by a court order), you can nominate for a position on council regardless of qualifications, religion, race, gender, experience or profession. In fact, council actively encourages nominations from people from diverse backgrounds to ensure that a wide range of views are being represented.
|Please come back again soon to find out about information sessions for potential candidates.|
Nominations open Tuesday 4 September 2018 and close Tuesday 18 September 2018 at 12 noon.
During this time, you must complete and lodge a nomination form which is available from you council and other advertised locations.
You will also be asked to lodge a 150-word candidate profile and a ‘head shoulders’ photograph which will be published on a candidates’ website.
|Please come back again soon as the 2018 candidate resources should be available in July 2018.|
Placement of election signage in the Wattle Range Council may be undertaken in accordance with the Local Government Association of South Australia Election Signs - General Approval Guidelines and council's By-Laws. The Guideline provides information about when and where signage can be placed and specifications that signs must meet.
Other than as provided for in the above guidelines and By-Laws, Council does not approve any other placement or affixation of election signage.
As a courtesy, candidates may notify Council of their intent to place signage in the Wattle Range Council area by email to email@example.com.
