Local Government elections in New South Wales are generally held every four years, on the second Saturday of September. The next election for Waverley Council will be held on Saturday, 4 September 2021.

The 2021 Waverley Council elections will be conducted by the New South Wales Electoral Commission.

Council encourages everyone who can vote to make their vote count by participating in the election.

Are you enrolled to vote?

If you are a resident in the Waverley Local Government Area (Waverley LGA),  you can check if your enrolment details are up to date with the Australian Electoral Commission.

Non-residential roll

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.
