The 2024 local government elections will include elections for mayors and councillors in each of Queensland’s 77 councils.
Election day will be on Saturday, 16 March 2024.
So you want to be a councillor or mayor?
By becoming a councillor, or even just running for election, you can make a positive difference to your local community. Queensland’s councils need councillors and mayors that reflect the diversity of our communities.
To run for mayor or councillor at the 2024 quadrennial election, you must complete the ‘So you want to be a Councillor’ course within six months of the nomination period commencing, regardless of whether you are a sitting mayor or councillor, or whether you have never been elected before.
