Non-resident owners, occupiers and rate paying-lessees can apply to be placed on the non-residential roll to be eligible to vote in the election.

NSW Electoral Commission Nomination Process

The electoral laws that candidates must comply with and the ongoing obligations of councillors to make disclosures about electoral funding are administered by the NSW Electoral Commission. Non - compliance with or mistakes about these responsibilities may mean political participants miss out on running in an election and/or find themselves facing significant enforcement action, such as fines.

The NSWEC has written to Council strongly suggesting that candidates consult with the NSWEC to get a full understanding of the processes, their obligations in relation to nomination and other laws that apply to candidates. Although the NSWEC cannot give legal advice about a person's specific circumstances, they have requested that any such queries should be directed to their website at www.elections.nsw.gov.au for more information.

Candidates are also to be encouraged to contact the NSWEC via email candidates@elections.nsw.gov.au or phone the Candidate Helpdesk 1300 022 011.

The NSWEC is also planning to run a series of candidate webinars in the coming months, which will also be recorded and loaded onto the NSWEC website, alongside other election - focused material.
