Anyone registered on the electoral role in Murray River Council MUST turn out to vote in a referendum on whether to abolish the council’s three wards and become an undivided council area. The current wards each have representation from 3 councillors. If it were to become an undivided area, electoral boundaries would be removed, and the 9 councillor seats could be elected from anywhere in the municipality

Remember, voting is compulsory.
