(13/3/18) Vote now for South Ward by-election

Electors in the City of Fremantle’s South Ward have been reminded to get their votes in for Friday’s by-election.

The by-election was required after the Court of Disputed Returns ruled the City of Fremantle South Ward Election held on 21 October 2017 was invalid. 

This decision was solely due to one of the unsuccessful ward candidates being declared ineligible to stand in the election.

The election is again being conducted as a postal election. Election packages with ballots papers and candidate information were posted to South Ward electors last month.

Replacement packages can be picked up from the customer service centre at the City of Fremantle’s administration building at Fremantle Oval until Thursday, or at the chief polling place at the Fremantle Town Hall on election day.

Completed postal packages must be received by the returning officer by 6:00pm on election day – Friday 16 March.

Packages can also be handed to an electoral officer at the City of Fremantle’s administration building and Fremantle Oval until 5pm on Thursday.

On Friday, election packages can be handed in at the chief polling place at the Fremantle Town Hall between 8:00am – 6:00pm.
