On election day you must vote in the local government area where you are enrolled or do an early vote (postal or pre-poll). Unlike State of Federal elections, you cannot vote outside your local area.
Polling places are open 8am to 6pm on election day. Not sure where you are enroled? Click here to check your enrollment.

As Lord Mayor, I’ve worked hard to improve our city and its villages. We have built award winning libraries and pools, created beautiful new parks and open spaces, upgraded and beautified our main streets, seen small bars flourish and improved on Sydney’s great reputation for events, culture and the arts.
I want to continue this work. We must invest in more childcare and other facilities that make it possible to raise families in the city. We must support local businesses and foster innovation. We must improve transport options and reduce congestion. And we must continue to reduce our impact on the environment.
If you believe in an independent and progressive city, I need your support.
