The next City Of Sydney local government election will take place on September 12, 2020. To ensure that your enrolment details are up to date, visit the Australian Electoral Commission website

You may still be eligible to vote even if you are not technically a resident of the City of Sydney LGA if you are included on the non-residential register:

The non-residential register contains the details of people who may be entitled to vote as non-residents at City of Sydney local government elections.

This includes owners, occupiers and rate-paying lessees of rateable property in the City of Sydney local area who don’t live in the city.

NSW Government changes to the City of Sydney Act 1988 made it compulsory for the City to maintain this register and for anyone who meets the eligibility criteria to give their details to the City when requested. This requirement is different in other council areas.

Remember, you’ll need to update details, submit your non-resident application, and make any nominations by July 6, 2020.
