Local governments make many decisions that affect your community and it is vital that your views are taken into consideration. By voting at local elections, you can contribute to effective local government. If you don't vote, you have no say in determining the person who represents you when making decisions in areas like local planning and development, recreation space and the upkeep of your community.
Voting at a local government election provides you with an opportunity to elect a person you believe can make the best contribution to your community by being a President or Councillor in your area.
