Elections for Tweed Shire Councillors

Tweed Shire Council is governed by seven Councillors who are elected to represent the shire (there are no wards or divisions).

The election process is managed by the NSW Electoral Commission (external link).

Our Councillors are elected for a four-year term of office.

The Mayor and Deputy Mayor are elected by the Councillors in a process managed by Tweed Shire Council. The Mayor is elected at the first meeting of the Council for a period of two years, the Deputy Mayor is elected for one year.

Local government elections will be held on Saturday September 4, 2021

Earlier this year the Government postponed the September 2020 local government elections for 12 months to address the risks posed by COVID-19.

The 2021 NSW local government elections will take place on Saturday September 4, 2021.

Tweed Shire’s current councillors will continue to hold their civic offices until the rescheduled local government elections.

Councillors will elect both the Mayor and Deputy Mayor in September 2020.

The postponement of the next election (external link) will not change the future schedule of council elections, and the subsequent election will still proceed in September 2024.
