NSW Local Government Elections


2024 Local Government elections

On Saturday 14 September 2024, Greater Hume Council will conduct councillor elections to elect nine councillors to serve for a four year term.  

A constitutional referendum will also be held for electors to consider whether the Council area should continue to be divided into wards.

Stand as a candidate to serve as a councillor on the Greater Hume Council.

If you have a strong sense of community and are keen to make a difference in your local area, then you should consider nominating for the 14 September 2024 Greater Hume local government elections. Local councils are the level of government closest to the community. They provide key infrastructure, facilities and services to local residents and are integral to improving the lifestyle and amenity of local communities.

Councillors represent their local community’s needs, wants and aspirations and make important decisions on behalf of their local community. You don’t need any formal qualifications and you will receive training, support, expenses and fees if you are elected.

The NSW Government is committed to inspiring and empowering more women to stand for their local community and nominate to run for their local council at the September 2024 elections. Women from all walks of life are being encouraged to put their hand up for election to help ensure local councils are representative of the communities they serve.
