2021 Local Government Elections

Local government elections are held every two years, with the next round on 16 October 2021.

Nominations open on 2 September 2021 and close at 4pm on 9 September 2021.

Anyone intending to nominate for election must first complete a free online induction course, provided by the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries (DLGSC).

The course gives community members a basic understanding of what is required from a council member before nominations open in early September.

Prospective candidates are encouraged to regularly check the DLGSC website for updates about induction requirements and other matters related to local elections.

The Shire of Donnybrook Balingup will be hosting a CANDIDATE INFORMATION SESSION for prospective candidates on Wednesday 1 September at 6pm at the Donnybrook Council Chamber on Collins Street.
