The election of Mayor and deputy Mayor positions are filled by popular vote as part of the election process.
General Manager's Roll
Local Government elections are held by postal ballot conducted by the Tasmanian Electoral Commission. Voting in the elections is not compulsory, however Circular Head Council encourages all eligible voters to ensure that they are correctly enrolled to allow them to have their say in the elections and the future of the Circular Head municipality.
If you would like to vote in the Circular Head Council elections, you must be enrolled on either the Tasmanian House of Assembly Electoral Roll at an address in Circular Head or on the General Manager's Roll for the Circular Head municipal area.
If you are not eligible to enrol on the Tasmanian House of Assembly Roll, for example if you are not an Australian Citizen, you may be eligible to enrol as an individual on the General Manager's Roll and vote if you own or occupy property within the Circular Head municipality. Please see the Owner/Occupier enrolment form below.
If you own property in Circular Head but do not reside in the Circular Head municipality you may be eligible to enrol on the General Manager's Roll as an individual. Persons owning property in more than one municipal area can be enrolled in each area and vote accordingly. Please see the Owner/Occupier enrolment form below.
A Corporate Body that owns or occupies any land in the Circular Head municipal area is entitled to nominate one person to vote on its behalf at the local government elections. Please see the Corporate Bodies enrolment form below.
Individuals or Corporate Bodies who have previously enrolled on the General Manager's roll are requested to notify Council if your details have changed since the last Local Government elections. Neglecting to update your details may result in your ballot paper not reaching you and you not being able to cast your vote.
