Things you need to know  

Non-residential electoral roll

The electoral rolls for the 2016 election will close on 1 August. On this date, the City of Sydney will provide details from the non-residential register to the NSW Electoral Commission.  After this date, they will verify if each individual on the register is eligible for the non-residential electoral roll. 

If you are eligible, your name and address will be added to the non-residential electoral roll and you will be required to vote at the next City of Sydney Local Government election.

Checking your name on the electoral roll 

From early August, you should check if your name is on the non-residential electoral roll before election day to confirm if you are required to vote.

You can check the roll by either:

  • checking online with the NSW Electoral Commission
  • visiting the City of Sydney Customer Service Centre in Town Hall House, 456 Kent Street Sydney, where the roll will be available
  • calling our Customer Service team on 1800 101 667.

The address on the electoral roll will be that of the property you own, occupy or lease in the City of Sydney Local Government Area.

Voting at the 2016 Local Government election

It is compulsory to vote at this election if your details are on the electoral roll. There is no absentee voting at Local Government elections, apart from at Sydney Town Hall, but you can apply for a postal vote or vote at a pre-poll location before election day.
