Local Government Elections

Walcha is divided into four wards where Councillors are elected from each ward by electors enrolled in that ward. Our Councillors from 2016 and Wards are:

Ward A:

Clr Peter Blomfield and Clr Rachael Wellings

Clr Eric Noakes - Mayor and Clr Clint Lyon - Deputy Mayor

Ward C:

Clr Jennifer Kealey and Clr Scott Kermode

In Walcha, the Mayor is elected by the Councillors at the first Council meeting following their election, however the Electoral Office is not involved in those elections.  The Mayor is elected every second year by the Councillors in September.  The Mayor was elected in 2016.

Elections are held in September in every fourth year.  The latest election was held on 10 September 2016 and the next election will be held in September 2020
