Yarra City Council Election will be conducted by postal vote

Richmond Town Hall

Local government elections will be held across Victoria on Saturday 24 October 2020. For the first time, voting will be conducted entirely by postal ballot across the State.

We encourage you to read the information below or contact the Victorian Electoral Commission (VEC) if you are unsure about how to vote in the Yarra City Council election.

When will the postal ballots be mailed out?

Ballot packs will be mailed out to your address (as listed on the Electoral Roll) between Tuesday 6 October and Thursday 8 October.

All candidates will be able to provide voters with a 300 word statement in their ballot packs to be sent to voters.

What if I’m away from my address?

You can contact the VEC to request a redirection of your ballot pack if you are not going to be at your address in early October when the packs are sent out. This includes those who have moved house after the close of the Electoral Roll in August.

The ballot pack will contain:

  • a ballot paper attached to statements and photographs lodged by the candidates in your council or ward
  • a ballot paper envelope with a flap
  • voting instructions
  • a reply-paid envelope.
