The next Local Government Election is 21 October 2017.
Information about Local Government Elections:
The City of Bayswater is made up of eleven Councillors representing four Wards, including the Mayor and Deputy Mayor who are elected to the positions by the Council.
Local Government Elections are held every two years. At each Ordinary Election, at least half the City of Bayswater Councillors are elected for a term of four years. A Mayor and Deputy Mayor are voted into office by Elected Members at a special meeting of Council, held the first Monday post election, for a two year term.
