Eurobodalla Labor for Council today reminded ACT residents who also reside on the NSW south coast there are only three business days left for them to register to vote in the 4 December NSW local government elections.

It is believed several thousand Australian Capital Territorians split their lives between the nation’s capital and the south coast, and some might not be aware of their right to vote in the forthcoming Eurobodalla Shire Council election.

Eurobodalla Labor for Council is reaching out on behalf of the Mayoral and five Councillor candidates in the delayed 4 December NSW local government elections,” Mayoral candidate David Grace said today.

“We know there are many Canberra/ACT-based Eurobodalla Shire part-time residents who may be entitled to vote if they own, occupy or lease property in Eurobodalla.

“Registration to vote closes on 25 October so it’s important for any out-of-town ratepayers who own, occupy or lease property in Eurobodalla to get registered so they can vote either by post or at the ballot box,” he said.

For the first time Labor is standing a team of candidates in the Eurobodalla.

“We are excited about the support we are already getting on the ground: from Bateman’s Bay to Batehaven, Mogo to Tuross Heads, Broulee to Moruya, Bodalla to Potato Point, Narooma to Mystery Bay and Tilba, all the way to Akolele and everywhere in-between,” Mr Grace said.

“There is an urgent need for a council that demonstrates consultation, transparency, and inclusion as it rebuilds democratic governance.

NSW iVote arrangements are available for ACT voters (who live more than 20km from a Eurobodalla polling booth) participating in the poll. They are an easy alternative to postal and in-person options.

“Our six strong ALP candidates are committed to delivering this to Eurobodalla; we want to make a difference,” he added.

Eurobodalla Labor for Council’s  candidates in the 4 December local government elections are: Mayor, David Grace from Broulee; and Councillors, Maureen Searson from Batehaven; Matthew Findlay from Batemans Bay; Claire McAsh from Moruya; Deirdre Russack from Narooma; and Jack Egan from Rosedale.
