Nominate for 2024 Council Election

This in-depth resource was developed to support any members of the community considering whether to nominate in this year's election.


Be empowered leading into the Local Government Elections on Saturday, 14 September 2024. Whether you are planning to vote or are a potential candidate considering running for Council, we have developed resources to help you prepare.

Four years have passed since our last Local Government Elections in 2021, where we voted on the ward system introduced with the amalgamation. The Dubbo electorate voted with a resounding 74.59% majority to abolish. Voters will now have an opportunity to vote for any candidates nominated for the 2024 election.

Voting in this election is an opportunity to determine 11 representatives who form the elected body that governs Council across various aspects of our Local Government Area. A key responsibility of all elected councillors is to act in the interests of our residents and ratepayers through open, transparent and informed decision making.

We invite you to +follow this page to keep up-to-date with the latest information on the 2024 Local Government Election.
