Make a change, run for council.

by Brighton Council

Thinking about running for council but don’t know where to start? The Tasma­nian Electoral Commission (TEC) has published a 28- page handbook detailing helpful election info such as how to complete a nomina­tion form, how to get nomi­nated, rules for advertising and how to avoid electoral offences. You must submit your candidate statement and photo by 12pm Mon­day 19 September, with polling open from 3 – 25 October.

Anyone can put in a nomination as a council­lor, as long as you reside primarily in Tasmania and are an elector in your municipal area. You must not be employed by the council in that municipal­ity, have been previously removed from the council, be undergoing a term of imprisonment, or have been sentenced for a crime for which the sentence has not been executed.

Hard copies of the hand­book are available from the TEC office in Moonah or by ringing the TEC on 1800 801 701 to have one posted to you. Alternatively, you can find a digital copy of the handbook by visiting the TEC website at www.tec.tas.gov.au.
