The Town of Port Hedland local government elections are held every two years, on the third Saturday in October. The Mayor and eight (8) Councillors are each elected for four-year terms, with half of the elected members being elected every biennial election.

Local government elections play an important role in our democratic system and are an excellent opportunity for people to contribute to, and be involved in their local community.

The next election for the Town will be a postal election, and is being held on 16 October 2021 at the Civic Centre in Port Hedland.
