Maroondah City Council Electoral Representation Review

The Victorian Electoral Commission (VEC) is reviewing the electoral structure of Maroondah City Council and is seeking your input.

By law, every Victorian council must have its electoral structure reviewed approximately every 12 years to ensure it provides fair and equitable representation for all voters.

This review is called an electoral representation review and considers:

  • if the council has the right number of councillors per voter
  • if the council should be one large area (unsubdivided) or made up of wards (subdvidided)
  • if subdivided, how many wards, what ward boundaries and how many councillors each ward should have.

You are invited to take part in the review by making a submission to the VEC. The VEC has prepared a submission guide to help in preparing submissions.

The VEC will also be hosting a public information session for anyone interested in finding out more about the review.

The key dates for the review are below:
