Local Government elections will take place on 21 October 2017. While voting is voluntary, it can be disappointing if you want to exercise your right to vote and find you’re not on the roll.
If you own a property in the Shire but your primary residence is somewhere else, you may find you are not on the Donnybrook-Balingup local government roll. This is because local government rolls are taken from State or Federal rolls, but you can only be listed on State or Federal rolls once. Therefore you may need to contact us to make sure you are on the Shire of Donnybrook-Balingup Owners and Occupiers Roll.
