VICTORIAN local government elections will be held via postal vote in October, and local residents have the opportunity to nominate for election to Alpine Shire Council.

Seven councillors will be elected for a four-year term to represent the Alpine Shire community.

Alpine Shire Council Chief Executive Officer Charlie Bird said anyone interested in becoming a candidate can nominate from 17 September

“Standing for election is a fantastic opportunity to influence the future direction of the local community and help those who require support,” he said.

“Candidates can find out more about how to nominate from the Victorian Electoral Commission, which manages the election process. 

“Candidates should be aware that there have been some changes to eligibility.

“The Victorian Government has recently made changes that requires all local government candidates to complete mandatory training to be eligible to nominate.”
