The health and safety of residents, customers and employees is our top priority and we are continuing to monitor developments in response to COVID-19. Some Council facilities have reopened - please follow physical distancing rules of 1.5 metres, limit outdoor gatherings in line with NSW Government restrictions, and continue to practice safe hygiene and wash hands regularly.
The NSW Government has postponed the September 2020 local government elections due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The next council election will be held on 4 September 2021.
Lake Macquarie City Council is divided into three wards: North, East and West.
All Lake Macquarie residents, who are 18 years of age or over, are eligible to enrol through the State Electoral Office and vote in the local government elections.
Residents who are enrolled to vote, elect a Mayor and four councillors to represent their respective ward. Ordinary elections are held every four years, usually on the second Saturday of September.
All elected members must lodge a declaration listing all political donations received and electoral expenditure incurred. A register of these declarations is available on the Electoral Commission NSW website.
