Countback Election 2023
About this election
The countback election is required to fill one casual vacancy in the Lithgow City Council. The casual vacancy has occurred due to the resignation of Cr Deanna Goodsell. After the 4 December 2021 ordinary election, Council voted at their first meeting to use Countback to fill any vacancies in the first 18 months of the Council term.
Do I have to vote?
No – the preference data from ballot papers from the previous local government ordinary election will be used.
