Combining these two rolls produces the Consolidated Roll. Residents Roll The Residents Roll is maintained by the Western Australian Electoral Commission. Individuals (irrespective of whether they own the property or are tenants) that live in the City of Stirling and are on the State Electoral Roll will automatically be on this roll and have the choice to vote in the City of Stirling Local Government Elections.If you are not already on the State Electoral Roll and meet the eligibility criteria, or if you have changed address recently, you must complete an enrolment form or you can enrol online via the Enrol to vote or update your details link.Enquiries about the Residents Roll should be directed to the Western Australian Electoral Commission on 13 63 06 (WA only) or (08) 9214 0400 or check your enrolment eligibility status through the Western Australian Electoral Commission website.Non-Resident Owners and Occupiers RollThe Non-Resident Owners and Occupiers Roll is maintained by the City of Stirling. This roll is comprised of individuals who own (but do not reside) or who occupy (lease, rent, etc.) rateable property in the City and are on the State or Commonwealth Electoral Roll. Enrolment of non-resident owners or occupiers is not automatic. If you are not on the State or Commonwealth Electoral Roll and own or occupy rateable property in the City you may be eligible to enrol to vote. This applies if you were on the last electoral roll for the City prior to May 1996 and have owned or occupied rateable property in the district continuously since this time. Non-Resident Owners Eligibility Each rateable property may claim up to two owners or owner nominees on the roll. Owners of land who were on the last local government roll continue to retain that status until they cease to own the rateable property to which the enrolment relates.Occupiers EligibilityOccupiers do not have continuous enrolment and should contact the City to confirm their enrolment status. To be eligible to enrol as an occupier, you will need to have a right of continuous occupation under a lease, tenancy agreement or other legal instrument for at least the next three months following the date of the application to enrol.Occupiers and occupier nominees remain on the roll for a period of two elections after their enrolment is accepted and are then taken off the roll six months after the second election. They must then re-enrol if they wish to continue as electors.Joint Owners and Occupiers Eligibility If a rateable property is owned or occupied by more than two people, a majority of the owners/occupiers may nominate two persons from amongst themselves who are on either the State or Commonwealth Electoral Roll, to go on the roll. The nominees remain on the roll until either the property is sold or the nominees change. Corporations EligibilityA body corporate that owns or occupies rateable property may nominate two people who are on either the State or Commonwealth Electoral Roll to go on the roll.The nominees remain on the roll until either the property is sold or the corporate body changes its nominees.Further enquiries about the Non-Resident Owners and Occupiers Roll and to check your entitlement may be directed to the City of Stirling Customer Contact Centre on (08) 9205 8555 or via email at email@example.com.City of Stirling Enrolment Eligibility Claim Form must be lodged with the Chief Executive Officer by 5.00pm on the 50th day before election day.
