|Nominations for the upcoming Hindmarsh local government election closed yesterday and the list of candidates has been released.
Residents in the East Ward (Dimboola) will not need to vote in the main election next month as there was only one candidate for the two vacancies in this ward. There will be a by-election at a later date to fill the remaining vacancy.
There are two vacancies in each ward, with four candidates nominating for the North Ward and three for the West Ward.
Current councillors David Colbert (West Ward) and Tony Schneider (East Ward) have both not re-nominated.
Voting will take place in October by post, with ballot packs sent out to eligible voters from 6th to 8th October.
