Non-residential electoral rolls

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

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 on 10 September 2016.

Checking your name on the electoral roll 

From early August, you will be 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
  • visiting City of Sydney, Town Hall House, 456 Kent Street Sydney, where the roll will be available for public inspection
  • 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. The address of silent electors will not be displayed.

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 Sydney Town Hall, but you can apply for a postal vote or vote at a pre-poll location before election day.

See the NSW Electoral Commission’s election website or contact them on 1300 135 736 for more details.
