Who is eligible to be on a non-residential roll?

Unlike the residential electoral roll, the non-residential roll is not maintained by the NSW Electoral Commission but by each council for its Local Government Area. A non-residential roll is only valid for the election for which it is prepared, so you must re-enrol for every election.

Those interested in registering on the non-residential electoral roll must ensure a properly completed claim form is received by the General Manager by 5pm, Monday, 5 August, 2024. After this time, Council will pass the details to the NSW Electoral Commission for verification, and verified claimants will then be added to the authorised electoral roll for the 2024 election.
