Glenelg Shire Council representation review

The VEC is conducting an electoral representation review of Glenelg Shire Council and is seeking community input.

Representation reviews ensure all voters in a local council area have their concerns and interests fairly represented by their council.

What the review will cover

The review examines:

  • whether a local council has the appropriate number of councillors
  • whether the local council should be unsubdivided, with councillors elected from the whole local council, or subdivided into wards
  • if subdivided, the number of wards, ward boundaries and the number of councillors per ward.
