Voter rolls close this Friday

Horsham Rural City Council has issued a call to residents and ratepayers to be ready to vote.

The electoral role closes at 4pm on Friday 28 August.

“As this is a postal election, it’s important to check both your postal and residential addresses are correct, so you receive your ballot pack,” Chief Executive Officer Sunil Bhalla said.

“Council makes important decisions about your community facilities, services and local business community, so it’s important to have your say by voting in this election,” he said.

Voting is compulsory for voters on the state roll as of Friday.

For state-enrolled voters, you can enrol, or update your enrolment, online at or by calling the Victorian Electoral Commission on 1300 805 478. You can register for VoterAlert at the same time, a free SMS and email election reminder service.

If you’re not an Australian citizen but pay rates to council, own property in the Rural City of Horsham but do not live in the area, or are a director or company secretary of a corporation that pays rates to council and have no other voting entitlements for this council, you can apply to become a council-enrolled voter.
