Local Council Election in Port Phillip

You can shape the future of your neighbourhood and community through the October 2020 Election for the next Port Phillip Council.

The Election is a powerful way of expressing your voice, concerns and issues.

And this Election will be the most important local election in a generation.

It will be a stark choice between a vision to ensure Port Phillip is an even better place to live and work and policies that will slash basic services and cut investment in things that make Port Phillip great including the arts, housing, child care, our open spaces and more.
