Non-residential rolls for the Council of the City of Sydney

(as reflected in the February 2015 legislative changes to the City of Sydney Act 1988)

The City of Sydney Act 1988, following February 2015 legislative changes, requires the General Manager to prepare and confirm the non-residential rolls for all elections for the Council of the City of Sydney. Under the law non-residential rolls lapse after each local government election.

In addition these February 2015 changes to the City of Sydney Act 1988 Section 18D now requires the General Manager to establish a Register of non-residential roll electoral information prior to the September 2016 Local Government Elections.

If you believe you should be registered to vote as a non-resident elector for the Council of the City of Sydney elections please register directly with the Council of the City of Sydney.

The City of Sydney Act 1988 Section 22 requires non-residential electors on the Council of the City of Sydney electoral roll to vote at that Council's elections.

If you were included on the electoral roll for the September 2016 City of Sydney local government election as a non-residential elector and you did not vote it is quite likely that you will be sent an "Apparent failure to vote" letter. For more details on the options relating to that letter please follow the instructions included there or visit our "Penalties for not voting" webpage for clarification.
