If you are not a resident, you may be entitled to vote if you own, occupy or lease property in the Greater Hume Local Government Area (LGA) as a corporation, business or individual. You will have to be registered on Greater Hume Council’s non-residential roll. You may only cast one vote within a council area, irrespective of the number of properties or parcels of land you own. Registration is not compulsory.
A non-residential roll is only valid for the council election it is prepared for, so you must re-enrol for every election. If you were on the non-residential roll previously and you are still eligible to be on that roll, you should re-apply to be included on the new roll. Read more about the non-residential roll on the NSW Electoral Commission website.
You need to fill out the Individual Claim Form(PDF, 139KB) if you are:
- an owner of rateable land in the Greater Hume LGA, or
- an occupier or rate-paying lessee of rateable land in the Greater Hume LGA.
If you own, occupy or lease the property with other people, you must nominate who will be voting on behalf of everyone and fill out the Nomination Claim Form(PDF, 160KB).
Registration for inclusion on the non-residential roll for the 2021 Council election closes at 6.00pm on 25 October 2021.
