2021 NSW Local Government Elections

2021 NSW Local Government elections will be held on Saturday, 04 September 2021

Local government elections are a vital part of the democratic process, ensuring local councils are accountable to their local communities.

The nomination period for the elections starts on Monday, 26 July 2021 and closes on 12 noon, Wednesday, 4 August 2021.

Snowy Valleys Council is made up of 9 councillors (one of whom is the mayor). Councillors elected in September 2021 will serve a reduced three-year term after the 2020 election was postponed by 12 months due to COVID-19.

  • Learn new skills such as leadership, public speaking and advocacy
  • Work with diverse and passionate people on a range of issues
