The local government elections will be held on Saturday 14 September 2024.

It’s just under a year until local government elections in NSW, with polling to be held across the State on Saturday 14 September 2024.

All seven Councillor positions will be contested at the poll in the Tweed, with the number of Councillors confirmed by a resolution at the 7 September 2023 Council Meeting.

Current Councillors elected in December 2021 are serving a reduced term of 2 years and 8 months as the 2020 election was postponed due to COVID-19.

The election process will be managed by the NSW Electoral Commission.

The 14 September 2024 poll will not include a Mayoral election.

In the Tweed, 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 2 years.  If Council chooses to have a Deputy Mayor, they are elected for one-year terms. 

Manager Corporate Governance Stephanie Papadopoulos said preparations had already begun for the 2024 election. 

“For those who may have an interest in becoming a councillor and want to know more about how to stand for election, briefing sessions for potential candidates will be made available in the Tweed in the first half of 2024,” Ms Papadopoulos said. 

Those considering standing for election as a Councillor can find out more at Become a Councillor - Office of Local Government NSW.
