Stand for Council

This year’s council elections are an opportunity for Victorians to elect the candidates who they think best represents, at the local level, their vision and interests for a better, stronger and more sustainable future.

The right to nominate as a candidate, and the right of citizens to vote for a candidate that best represents them, is a cornerstone of our democracy.

The MAV is now finalising its 2024 Stand for Council Program, which will be delivered in line with VEC communication.

It is built on the understanding that a strong, healthy and inclusive democracy is best served by a lot of skills, experience, views and innovation.

We will host a series of information sessions for prospective candidates and the community to better understand the role and responsibility of a councillor and their council.

There will also be a range of activities to raise awareness of the council elections.
