You are automatically enrolled to vote if you are on the State Electoral Roll as at 5:00 PM Thursday, 12 January 2023. If you are not already on the State Electoral Roll and meet the eligibility criteria, or if you have changed address recently, you must complete an enrolment form.

Non-Resident Owners and Occupiers
If you are a non-resident owner or occupier of rateable property in the Como Ward of the City of South Perth and are on the State or Commonwealth Electoral Roll, you are eligible to enrol to vote.
If you are not on the State or Commonwealth Electoral Roll and own or occupy rateable property in Como Ward of the City of South Perth you may be eligible to enrol to vote. This applies if you were on the last electoral roll for the City of South Perth prior to May 1996 and have owned or occupied rateable property in the district continuously since this time.
Owners of land who were on the last Local Government roll continue to retain that status until they cease to own the rateable property to which the enrolment relates. Occupiers do not have continuous enrolment and should contact the City of South Perth to confirm their enrolment status.
To be eligible to enrol as an occupier, you will need to have a right of continuous occupation under a lease, tenancy agreement or other legal instrument for at least the next three months following the date of the application to enrol.
Joint Owners and Occupiers
If a rateable property is owned or occupied by more than two people, a majority of the owners/occupiers may nominate two persons from amongst themselves who are on either the State or Commonwealth Electoral Roll, to enrol as owner/occupier electors.
A body corporate that owns or occupies rateable property may nominate two people who are on either the State or Commonwealth Electoral Roll to enrol as owner/occupier electors.
Enrolment Forms – Non-Resident Owners and Occupiers Only
