“There are 16 councils going to election in August and I encourage anyone interested in nominating as a candidate, to lodge their nomination with the NTEC as early as possible. This provides time to resolve any issues that may arise with the form,” NT Electoral Commissioner Iain Loganathan said.

“The candidate’s photograph must be a clear, full-faced, portrait image of their head and shoulders, accompanied by a statement saying the photograph was taken within the last six months. “The nomination form must also include the names, enrolled addresses and signatures of not less than three people supporting the nomination. These supporters must be enrolled in the ward/council area for which the candidate is standing.

“Candidates will be declared on Friday 4 August. This event takes place at the NTEC offices in Darwin and Alice Springs and is open to the public,” Mr Loganathan said.

Nomination forms and a Candidate handbook are available at ntec.nt.gov.au, at the NTEC offices in Darwin or Alice Springs, or by calling 1800 698 683.

Anyone considering nominating as a candidate can contact Wayne Harlock on 8999 7613 or wayne.harlock@nt.gov.au to make arrangements to lodge completed nomination forms.

The City of Palmerston is under official management so the Palmerston Council election has been deferred.

Youth Week Democracy Dash in Darwin CBD

​SENIOR school students are ready, set, go to compete in the NTEC’s Democracy Dash being held in the Darwin CBD today, Thursday 6 April as part of National Youth Week, NT Electoral Commissioner Iain Loganathan said.


“Democracy Dash is a fun, interactive way for senior students to get a real-life understanding of the levels of government and their roles, the importance of being an active citizen, and the responsibilities that go with living in a democracy,” he said.


“Starting in Civic Park, the students will dash around the CBD in an ‘amazing race’ style event, visiting several organisations and completing an activity at each location.


“Some of the participating organisations include the NT Electoral Commission and the Australian Electoral Commission, Parliament House, Darwin City Council, the Local Court, Legal Aid, NAAJA, Mitchell Street Police Station, and the Anti-Discrimination Commission among others.


“The NTEC’s activity focus will be on the upcoming Council elections, which will be held in August this year.


“Prizes will be awarded to the winning team from the participating schools who have nominated for the Democracy Dash,” he said.


School teams taking part will set off from Civic Park at 9:30am, and will travel in groups of approximately 8 to 10 students with their teacher. The finish line will also be at Civic Park.


Follow the NTEC on Facebook and Twitter to experience the event as it unfolds.
