Enrol to vote in the 2016 Golden Plains Shire Council election


It’s time for all eligible residents and ratepayers to enrol for the upcoming Golden Plains Shire Council election.


Electoral Commissioner Warwick Gately has issued a call ahead of the enrolment deadline: ‘You must be enrolled by 4.00 pm Friday 26 August to have your say—if you’re 18 or over and you live or pay rates in Golden Plains Shire Council, check your enrolment now.’

Australian citizens living within Golden Plains Shire who have recently turned 18 or changed their address can enrol or update their details at vec.vic.gov.au. Paper enrolment forms are also available at any Australia Post or Australian Electoral Commission office.

Anyone on the State electoral roll for their current address and non-resident property owners are automatically enrolled for the election.

There are also additional enrolment categories for occupiers, company nominees and non-Australian citizens who pay rates for an address in Golden Plains Shire. People in these categories can apply directly to council to enrol, by calling (03) 5220 7111.

Further information on enrolment is available by calling 1300 805 478 or at vec.vic.gov.au, where voters can also sign up to the free Vic Election Alerts service to be sent important election reminders by text and email.
