Less than one year to the local council elections in NSW

by | 9 October, 2020

Welcome to 2021! This year the local council elections in NSW will be held on 4 September 2021. That is now less than one year away. To start the year with a bang, we are kicking the year off with the launch of our Locale Learning blog.

Delay of local council elections

After the delay of the elections for a whole year due to COVID-19, the elections this year are highly anticipated. For current councillors across NSW, they have had to extend their term in office by one year. This has been an extremely unprecedented year to govern with the pandemic and other natural disasters.

For candidates wishing to run and try their luck, they have had to delay their campaign for office for a year. This means that there are many eager candidates waiting in the wings ready to have a tilt for local office.

Countdown to election day

Over the next nine 9 months, we will be providing a regular dose of information and inspiration with our blog for local leaders and local councils. Here you can keep up to date with important information leading up to the election. You can be sure not to miss key election deadlines and news.

Free resources for candidates

With the launch of Locale Learning, we have also prepared a suite a of free resources for candidates to help prepare for the election. You can:

  • Access our free download to help candidates decide whether standing for the election is the right decision
  • Enrol in our free mini course which explains the key steps to becoming a councillor
  • Sign up to our free webinar which covers the ten questions to answer before standing
