Non-residential roll

Registration for inclusion on the non-residential roll for the 2021 Council election closes at 6pm on 25 October 2021.

If you are not a resident, you may be entitled to vote in the Waverley Council elections, if you own, occupy or lease property in the Waverley LGA as a corporation, business or individual. You will have to be registered on Waverley Council’s non-residential roll. A non-residential roll is only valid for the council election it is prepared for, so you must re-enrol for every election.

You can enrol on the non-residential roll, if you are:

  • an owner of rateable land in the Waverley LGA; or
  • an occupier or rate-paying lessee of rateable land in the Waverley LGA.

You will need to fill out the Individual Claim form. If you own, occupy or lease the property with other people, you must nominate who will be voting on behalf of everyone and fill out the Nomination Claim form.
