Local and State government elections
Other elections run by the NSW Electoral Commission
Why have elections?
All Australians, who are eligible to vote, choose people to represent them at three levels of government. Each level of government has a law-making body – a parliament or council – which is made up of representatives elected by the people. Each has different areas of responsibility in making decisions for all of us.
