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.

Ordinary 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 post-election, for a two year term.

The City's elections are conducted as postal elections by the Western Australian Electoral Commission. The Commission appoints a Returning Officer who oversees the elections which includes taking candidate nominations and supervising the count on election night.


Results of the 21 October 2017 Election can be found on the WA Electoral Commission website
