LOCAL GOVERNMENT ORDINARY ELECTION

CLOSE OF ENROLMENTS
Shire of Northam
ROLL CLOSE: 5:00 PM Friday, 1 September 2017

You may be eligible to be enrolled to vote in the local government elections on 21 October 2017 if you live in or are an owner or occupier of rateable property in the Shire of Northam.

Residents
You are automatically enrolled to vote if you are on the State Electoral Roll as at 5:00 PM Friday, 1 September 2017. If you are not already on the State Electoral Roll and meet the eligibility criteria, or if you have changed address recently, you must complete an enrolment form.

Enrolment Forms
Electoral enrolment forms are available from the Shire of Northam, all post offices, all Australian Electoral Commission offices or the Western Australian Electoral Commission and must be completed and reach a Divisional Returning Officer in Western Australia by 5:00 PM Friday, 1 September 2017.

Non-Resident Owners and Occupiers
If you are a non-resident owner or occupier of rateable property in the Shire of Northam and are on the State or Commonwealth Electoral Roll, you are eligible to enrol to vote. If you are not on the State or Commonwealth Electoral Roll and own or occupy rateable property in the Shire of Northam you may be eligible to enrol to vote. This applies if you were on the last electoral roll for the Shire of Northam prior to May 1996 and have owned or occupied rateable property in the district continuously since this time. Please contact your local government for details. Owners of land who were on the last Local Government roll continue to retain that status until they cease to own the rateable property to which the enrolment relates. Occupiers do not have continuous enrolment and should contact the Shire of Northam to confirm their enrolment status. To be eligible to enrol as an occupier, you will need to have a right of continuous occupation under a lease, tenancy agreement or other legal instrument for at least the next three months following the date of the application to enrol.

Joint Owners and Occupiers
If a rateable property is owned or occupied by more than two people, a majority of the owners/occupiers may nominate two persons from amongst themselves who are on either the State or Commonwealth Electoral Roll, to enrol as owner/occupier electors.

Corporations
A body corporate that owns or occupies rateable property may nominate two people who are on either the State or Commonwealth Electoral Roll to enrol as owner/occupier electors.

Enrolment Forms – Non-Resident Owners and Occupiers Only
Enrolment forms can be obtained from local governments and must be lodged with the Chief Executive Officer by 5:00 PM Friday, 1 September 2017. Further information can be obtained from the Shire of Northam.
