South ward elections - postal voting

Published: Wednesday, 2 October 2019 at 1:45:50 PM

Postal voting packs have been sent by the Electoral Commission to City of Vincent South Ward voters, with voting closing Saturday 19 October.

At Vincent the Local Government elections will only occur in the South Ward where there are six candidates for two vacancies. Information on each candidate is available on our website as well as the WA Electoral Commission website.

Mayor Emma Cole was unopposed and has been returned as the Mayor of Vincent for another four years. There were also only two candidates for North Ward to fill the two vacant positions, Dan Loden and Sally Smith. By only having the election in the South Ward, the Electoral Commission estimates cost to the City will be reduced by approximately $17,000.

The election is run by the WA Electoral Commission. All postal voting packages must be received by 6pm on election day (19 October) to make it into the count.

“Our Administration Centre at 244 Vincent Street will be open from 8am to 6pm on election day to receive any last minute ballots that haven’t made it into the post box in time. The count will be conducted from 6pm and the public is welcome to come and watch,” said City of Vincent CEO David MacLennan.

“If you are in the South Ward and your postal ballot gets damaged, or does not arrive you can also pop into our Administration Building in the lead up to the election and on election day to arrange to have a new one issued.

“Also, a reminder that North Ward electors won’t be receiving any ballot packs as the two North Ward positions on Council have been filled unopposed, and there is no Mayoral election.”
