Nomination forms

To nominate a candidate, two nominators and the candidate must complete a nomination form and comply with the legal requirements. Nomination forms are available here, and completed nomination forms are accepted by the Electoral Officer from 19 July 2019 until 16 August 2019. 

Nominations for the 2019 local government elections close at 12noon on 16 August.

Once received, we check nomination papers to ensure that:

  • The nominee’s name appears on the Parliamentary Roll, and
  • The people who nominated you are electors whose names appear on the Electoral Roll for the constituency in which you are standing

Once lodged with the Electoral Officer, nomination forms (not candidate profile statements) are ‘public information’ and any person may inspect any nomination form without payment of a fee at any time during ordinary office hours at the office of the Electoral Officer.
