Local Government Elections

In February and March 2003 Marion Blair and Anne McAllister conducted 14 workshops around Western Australia for women considering nominating for the 2003 elections. This major project was possible due to generous funding from the Department of Local Government and Regional Development, the Office of Women's Policy and the Federal Department of Local Government, Regional Development and Territories.

ALGWA (WA) has continued to encourage potential female candidates by facilitating workshops leading up to local government elections. These workshops are provided directly by members of the State Committee, or through the network of existing female councillors throughout the State. Contact the President if you would like to organise a workshop in your local area.

The WA Local Government elections are held in October each year. Please see the WA Electoral Commission website for dates, eligibility and information about how to nominate for election for your local council.

In 2019 we would love to see more women nominate and run for Council, and also to be elected. 

Please contact President Sam Fenn for more information.
