Voting is compulsory

Whether it is your first time voting or you've done it many times.

Short answer is yes, it's compulsory. Pre polling and iVoting is available if you cannot make it on the day.

See below.

How does it work?

The election is being run by the New South Wales Electoral Commission and will take place on Saturday 4 December.

The Northern Beaches area is split into 5 "wards" based on your suburb and number of residents. They are:


Manly Ward   Frenchs Forest Ward     Curl Curl Ward

Narrabeen Ward     Pittwater Ward

You will be asked to vote for the Councillors who will represent you in your ward.

3 Councillors in each of the 5 Wards will win a seat and those 15 Councillors will then elect the Mayor.
