Council elections - coming soon!
Local government, as the tier of government closest to the community, is where democracy starts.
In Victoria, 79 municipalities represent more than six million people. Each Victorian municipality is unique with populations varying from 4,000 to almost 400,000 people.
And local leadership is vital to support the wellbeing of local communities.
Committed, motivated and passionate people that reflect the diversity of our communities will be encouraged to stand for council next year.
Every election, the MAV - as Victoria’s peak body for local government - supports the election process.
Working closely with the VEC, we will provide several resources to better understand the purpose of local government, what is expected of a councillor and the processes for getting elected.
