CITY of Wanneroo has opted have the WA Electoral Commission (WAEC) run its postal election for the October local government elections, but councillors have bemoaned the lack of alternatives.
At their February council meeting, elected members supported a recommendation that the electoral commissioner would conduct this year’s council elections through postal votes.
However, mover Brett Treby said there had been issues with previous elections that the City wanted the WAEC to address.
“From my perspective, the service level that’s been provided by the WAEC since 2009 has diminished dramatically,” he said.
“We have had to engage them; we don’t have a choice.”
