Ward Representation

Your Councillors are elected​ by the community via the Local Government Elections. Elections are held every 2 years on the third Saturday of October. Councillors serve a 4 year term, thus at each ordinary election, approximately half of the eleven positions are up for election. This also means that for wards with only 1 elected member, ordinary elections only happen once every 4 years.

Each Councillor is elected to represent a ward in the district. The Shire of Manjimup is divided into 6 wards with the following division of labour;
