Enrolling to Vote

To be eligible to vote in Shire of Manjimup Elections, you must be over 18 and enrolled on the State Electoral Roll (SER) or the Shire of Manjimup's Owners and Occupiers roll. Voting in Local Government elections, while not compulsory, is an important way for you to connect with grassroots government.

All residents in the Shire of Manjimup who are enrolled on the State Electoral Roll are automatically enrolled to vote in Shire of Manjimup elections.

If you are over 18 and not enrolled on the State Electoral Roll, you must submit an enrolment application.

If you have recently moved into the Shire, you must update your enrolment on the State Electoral Roll.

Owners and Occupiers Roll

If you own or occupy property within the Shire of Manjimup in a different ward to that which you live, you may be eligible to enrol on the Owners and Occupiers Roll (OOR). Body Corporates who own property, may nominate two people to vote on behalf of the company. For example;

​You live in Pemberton and rent a commercial premises in Manjimup.​You must enrol on the SER for your Pemberton address.
You can apply to enrol on the Central Ward OOR.
​You live in Walpole and rent a commercial premises in Walpole in your name.​You must enrol on the SER for your Walpole address.
You are not eligible to enrol for your rented premises.
​You live in Walpole and rent a commercial premises in Walpole in a company name.​You must enrol on the SER for your Walpole address.
Your company can nominate two people to enrol against the commercial premises.
​You live in Perth and have a holiday home in Northcliffe.​You must enrol on the SER for your Perth address.

​You live in Queensland and own property in Manjimup in your name.​You must enrol on the Queensland SER.

Enrolment on the OOR is made via the forms below. Completion of the form does not guarantee enrolment - we will write to you within 14 days of receiving your completed form, confirming or denying your enrolment. You have the right of appeal to the Electoral Commissioner​ if we deny your enrolment request.

Enrolment by occupiers is valid from the date of acceptance and expires 6 months after the second ordinary election is held. (In some special cases, enrolment may expire 6 months after or the day after the third ordinary election.) We will write to you inviting you to renew your enrolment.

Enrolment by owners of property expires when the property is sold or transferred from your or the body corporate's name. For this reason, it is vitally important that our Rates Department is advised by your settlement agent in a prompt manner, when the sale of a property falls over.
