People who don’t live in Bass Coast, but pay rates here, are entitled to vote both where they live and in Bass Coast at the upcoming local council elections.
But only if they enrol here.
Enrolment is open until Friday, August 28. Non-residents are really important in Bass Coast, e.g. in Bunurong Ward they make up nearly 33 per cent of all possible votes, and in Island Ward it is nearly 60 per cent.
If you are a non-resident, please enrol.
If you are a resident but know people who pay rates here in Bass Coast, encourage them to enrol. For more info and how to enrol phone council on 1300 226 278. You can enrol online at vec.vic.gov.au.
