Council elections

Campaspe Shire Council's next general election will be held in October 2020, at which time all nine Councillor positions from the five wards will be decided for a four year term. The Victorian Electoral Commission (VEC) will conduct the elections.

You could be a Councillor if you are:

  • Interested in improving your community

Enrolling to vote

To be able to vote at Council elections, a person must be entitled to be included on Council’s voters’ roll on the entitlement date. A person may only be enrolled once on Campaspe's voters’ roll.


There are some excellent resources available to assist candidates in understanding local government, the role of a councillor and mayor, decision making, code of conduct, and more.
