Creating an account

Create an account to complete a nomination form for mayor or councillor. Where eligible, councillor candidates may also complete a request to form a group to appear on the ballot paper.

It is important to note that the person who creates the nomination or group is the only person who can lodge the nomination and/or group and deposit using this system.

Nomination deposit

Online nomination deposits can only be paid by Visacard or Mastercard credit or debit cards.


Please note by completing and lodging a nomination form and deposit your nomination has not been accepted. Each nomination is required to be verified by the NSW Electoral Commission against the electoral roll as at 6pm Monday, 25 October prior to acceptance. You will be notified if your nomination is confirmed or rejected.

Lodgement of nomination

Nomination forms can be completed and saved now using this system. However, nomination forms, nomination deposits and, if applicable councillor grouping forms, can only be lodged between 8am Monday, 25 October and 12 noon Wednesday, 3 November.
