Enrol to vote as a non-resident

Non-residential enrolment for Kiama Municipality Council local government elections.

Register before 6pm, 5 August 2024 to be eligible to vote in Kiama Council’s September elections.

If you’re interested in voting as a non-resident in the Kiama Council local government election here’s what you need to know:

Eligibility criteria:

You are eligible to vote as a non-resident in the Kiama local government area if you are:

  • an owner of rateable land in the Kiama Council area 
  • an occupier or rate-paying lessee of rateable land in the Kiama Council area.

Non-residential rolls are prepared and certified by Kiama Council’s Chief Executive Officer, and the NSW Electoral Commissioner confirms the eligibility of voters listed on these rolls. However, you are responsible for checking that you are eligible for inclusion in the non-residential roll for a council or ward when you make an application.

One vote per council area:

You can only vote once within a council area, regardless of whether you are enrolled on the residential or non-residential roll. For example, you can only have one vote within a council area, even if you or your company own, occupy or lease multiple rateable lands within that area.

Enrolments on behalf of corporations:

Eligible corporations can also enrol to vote on the non-residential roll for the Kiama Council area.

Remember that voting in local government elections is an essential way to participate in your community’s decision-making process. If you meet the criteria, make sure to exercise your right to vote!
