Dardanup Shire Council uses the postal voting system for elections which are conducted by the WAEC.

Postal voting packages will be posted out week beginning 17 September, 2021.

Local government elections are conducted using the ‘first past the post’ system. This means the result of an election is determined by simply counting the number of votes received by each candidate and the candidates with the most votes win until all vacancies are filled.
