Enrol to Vote

The voters’ roll for Council elections consists of two components – the House of Assembly (State) roll, and the Council supplementary roll.

If you are on the House of Assembly roll you will automatically receive a voting pack mailed to your registered address.

If you have moved house or changed your name, you need to complete a new enrolment form, available at your local Post Office or at the Electoral Commission SA office located at Level 6/60 Light Square, Adelaide or phone 1300 655 232 to request a form be sent to you. To check and update your enrolment click here.

If you are not enrolled on the House of Assembly roll you may be eligible to register on the Council supplementary roll if:

  • You have been resident at your current address for one month and are not on the State Electoral Roll
  • You are a sole owner/occupier of rateable property
  • You are NOT an Australian Citizen but you have been a resident at your current address for one month
  • You are a landlord for rateable property
  • You are an organisation/business owner or occupier of rateable property
  • You are a group of owners or occupiers of rateable property. 

Under the Local Government (Elections) Act 1999, there is a requirement to purge the council supplementary roll on 1 January of every election year. All landlords, business lessees and resident non-Australian citizens are removed from the Council voters roll and must re-enrol to be able to vote.

See below for the types of forms available to download:


Please note that the correct form must be completed, witnessed and returned by no later than 5pm on Friday, 10 August 2018 to assist you with enabling you to vote.
