Residents are being urged to check their enrolment to ensure they are ready to vote in the local government election on September 9.
“At the election Dubbo Regional Council's voting boundaries will be divided into wards which is a system most long-term residents in the local government area would not be familiar with,” DRC administrator Michael Kneipp said.
“It is important that everyone knows which ward they are registered in because it has an impact on how you can vote.
“I urge everyone to check their enrolment. The Electoral Commission of NSW provides a facility where you can enter your name and address and it will verify your enrolment and the ward you are enrolled in. This can be found at roll.elections.nsw.gov.au/NSWLookUp/, or you can call the Electoral Commission on 1300 135 736.
“It is important that you check your enrolment before July 31 when the rolls close so you can be confident you know which candidates have nominated in your registered ward,” Mr Kneipp said.
