Nominations Requirements

Candidates are required to lodge with the Returning Officer:

  • every candidate must complete the an online induction module available at www.dlgsc.wa.gov.au
  • a completed nomination form in the prescribed form, signed and witnessed. Nomination forms are also available from the Returning Officer; the Western Australian Electoral Commission or the City of Kalamunda
  • a single A4 page profile containing not more than 150 words of information about the candidate
  • A nomination deposit of $80.00 (cash, bank cheque or postal order)
  • A recent passport-sized photograph (optional).

Prior to nominating, potential candidates should read the WA Electoral Commission’s Guide for Candidates (Postal Elections)  and be familiar with eligibility, nomination and disclosure of gifts requirements.

The Commission has developed an online system called Nomination Builder to assist candidates to complete their nomination form which includes the candidate profile. This is the preferred method of completing the nomination form and profile for elections conducted by the Commission. Candidates complete their nomination details and profile, print the completed form which has a reference number allocated and lodge it with the Returning Officer. The nomination builder can be accessed at elections.wa.gov.au

Where an agent lodges a nomination on a candidate’s behalf, it must be in the prescribed form with a written authorisation signed by the candidate.

The documents may be hand delivered, posted or faxed to the Returning Officer and must be received by the close of nominations.


Full details about eligibility and nomination procedures for prospective candidates can be obtained by contacting the Returning Officer on 0414 771 291 or the Western Australian Electoral Commission 
on 13 63 06.
