Who is able to vote in a local government election?

All local residents and business owners/occupiers are encouraged to enrol to vote in local government elections.

All residents registered on the State/Federal electoral roll for properties within the Town of East Fremantle will be automatically registered for Local Government Elections. To check your enrollment details please visit the Western Australian Electoral Commission's website here or phone the Commission on 13 63 06.

If you own or occupy property in East Fremantle but don’t live here, then you may still be eligible to vote. However, you will need to apply to the Town's Chief Executive Officer to be included on the Owners and Occupiers Roll.  Corporate bodies can also nominate someone to vote on their behalf.

To ensure that you are included in the vote, please complete one of the electoral application forms listed further below and send it to the Town's Chief Executive Officer by no later than the close of rolls date (we'll let you know this closer to the next elections).
