Becoming an elected member

Elected members play a vital leadership role, working together to create and implement the community's vision, strategic direction and values.

Improving your community starts with local government. If you want to make a difference to your local facilities and services, consider becoming a candidate.

Any eligible elector in the City of Stirling (who is 18 years of age or older and who is not disqualified) can stand as a candidate in the City of Stirling local government elections. Please note, nominees of a body corporate cannot stand for election.

For more information on the role of elected members please visit the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries' website.
