General Manager’s Electoral Roll

PLEASE NOTE: the Tasmanian Electoral Commission (TEC) has advised nominations will open for the upcoming by-election 20 May 2024. You can find more information on the TEC’s website here.

The General Manager’s Roll is a list of people who are eligible to vote in local government elections, even if they don’t live in the Glenorchy municipality. 

You may be eligible for the General Manager’s Electoral Roll if: 

  • you are a resident in the Glenorchy municipality, but not eligible for the State electoral roll (for example, because you are not an Australian Citizen), or
  • you own or occupy land in Glenorchy, but do not live in Glenorchy (e.g. you lease a shop or own a property), or
  • you are the nominated representative of a corporate body which owns or occupies land in Glenorchy.

A voter, in an election in respect of one municipal area, has a maximum of two votes:

  • one vote is in their own right, and
  • one vote is on behalf of a corporate body
