Non-residential register and rolls
2016 Local Government election
Non-residential electoral rolls for 2016 are closed
The electoral rolls for the 2016 election closed on 1 August. The City of Sydney has now provided details from the non-residential register to the NSW Electoral Commission, which has verified if each individual on the register is eligible for the non-residential electoral rolls.
If you are eligible, your name and address has been added to the non-residential electoral roll and you will be required to vote at the next City of Sydney Local Government election on 10 September 2016. From mid-August these people will receive a letter notifying them of their inclusion on the electoral roll. You can download translated versions of the letter.
Checking your name on the electoral roll
You are able to check if your name is on the non-residential owner or occupier/ratepaying lessee 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. You must enter your details exactly as they appear on the electoral roll. The address required is the entitlement address as shown on your letter confirming you are enrolled.
- Visiting the City of Sydney office. A printed copy of the non-residential electoral roll will be available for public inspection between 8am to 6pm Monday to Friday from 8 August to 9 September 2016:
Town Hall House
Level 21, Town Hall House
456 Kent Street
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. The address of silent electors will not be displayed.
