Election Process Information

The election was conducted by the Western Australian Electoral Commission using the postal vote method. 

Vote counting takes place on election night as soon as possible after the close of polling.

The ‘first past the post’ system is used for Local Government Elections, in which electors indicate the candidate, or candidates, of their choice by placing a tick in the box opposite the names of the chosen persons, up to the number of vacancies to be filled, with candidates being elected in order of the number of votes they receive.
