Council Elections


Every four years the community gets the opportunity to vote for councillors who will represent them and make decisions on their behalf.

These elections are administered by the NSW Electoral Commission and you can find all the necessary information about past and future elections, including becoming a candidate, on their website.

The next local government elections are scheduled for September 2024, and voting is compulsory. 

In the Murrumbidgee Local Government Area, we elect 9 councillors and they subsequently choose one of their own as the Mayor.

Our Council is divided into these wards, with three councillors elected from each ward:

  • Jerilderie
  • Murrumbidgee east (centred around Coleambally)
  • Murrumbidgee (centred around Darlington Point)
