Council representation and subdivision reviews

Electoral representation reviews consider the number of councillors and the internal electoral structures of local councils. Each council is reviewed before every third council general election, although unscheduled reviews can also take place when required.

Subdivision reviews are conducted only to adjust the location of ward boundaries within a council. Subdivision reviews are generally required for councils where the average number of voters per councillor in one or more wards is likely to be 10% more or less than the municipality average at the next general election.

Representation and subdivision reviews make sure the electoral structure of a council provides fair and equitable representation for all its voters.
