Under the Local government Act 1995, Ordinary Local Government Elections are held every two years on the the third Saturday in October.  Councillors are elected for four-year terms of half the Councillors concluding at each biennial election.  The Shire's elections are conducted by postal vote overseen by the Western Australian Electoral Commission.  The Commission appoints a returning Officer who oversees the elections, including taking candidate nominations and supervising the count on election night.

Election packages have been posted to all people on the Shire's electoral roll.  Electors are to complete the ballot and return either by mail before the election day or they can be handed into the Administration Office at 1 Leake Street Peppermint Grove, by 6.00pm on election day (Saturday 16 October 2021).

The count commences at 6.00pm on election day and the results are usually available later that night.
