Electoral Representation Review 2019
The Victorian Electoral Commission (VEC) will commence an electoral representation review of Greater Dandenong City Council on 19 June 2019.
The Local Government Act 1989 (LG Act) requires the VEC to conduct an electoral representation review of each local council in Victoria before every third general election of that council (or approximately every 12 years).
Greater Dandenong’s current ward structure consists of eleven councillors in 3x three-councillor wards and 1x two-councillor ward. This structure was established by the Minister for Local Government in 2008 after an electoral representation review was undertaken by the VEC. (Prior to 2008, Greater Dandenong’s ward structure consisted of 11x single- councillor wards.)
