The Victorian Electoral Commission conducts Victorian State elections, local council elections, certain statutory elections, and commercial and community elections.
The current Council was elected in November 2020 and, under the Local Government Act 1989, is elected for a four-year term.
Each Councillor is appointed a portfolio area; some also have delegations to various boards, committees and associations that are listed in their profiles.
The 2020 general election was held by postal ballot with a Returning Officer appointed to the Borough to manage the conduct of the election, including candidate nominations and public enquiries at the Council offices.
The Victorian Electoral Commission is required to carry out compulsory voting enforcement in the Borough. Failure to vote notices will be issued and managed by the Victorian Electoral Commission.
