Fresh Election to be held in the City of Fremantle’s South Ward

An order made earlier today in the Fremantle Magistrates Court, sitting as a Court of Disputed Returns, will mean that a fresh election is to be held to elect a Councillor in the City’s South Ward.

This order overturns the outcome of the 21 October 2017 election for the City of Fremantle's South Ward.

The election will again be conducted as a postal election with polling closing at 6.00pm, Friday 16 March 2018.

The roll close date for this election is 5.00pm, Thursday 25 January 2018. Nominations will open on Wednesday 31 January and close at 4.00pm, Wednesday 7 February 2018.

Only electors enrolled for a property located in the South Ward of the City of Fremantle (by the roll close date) will be entitled to vote at this election.
