Buloke Shire Council representation reviews

We are holding a representation review of Buloke Shire Council and you can have your say.

What is a representation review?

Representation reviews look at the electoral structure of a local council. This includes:

  • if the council has the right number of councillors per voter
  • if the council should be one large area (unsubdivided) or made up of wards (subdvidided)
  • if subdivided, how many wards, what ward boundaries and how many councillors each ward should have.
