2022 Local Government elections

Consider for a moment how everyday life is improved by the many services that our council provides. Imagine West Torrens without street lighting, rubbish collection, footpaths, libraries, playgrounds and sports club facilities, community halls, seniors’ services – and the list goes on.

Decisions about these services, programs and infrastructure are made by a group of people known as Elected Members who have been voted into office by the local community. These elections occur every 4 years, with the next election scheduled for later this year, 2022. Unlike State and Federal elections which are compulsory to vote, Local Government elections are not compulsory.

The City of West Torrens comprises 14 councillors and one mayor. A list of our current Elected Members and an interactive ward map can be found here
