MacDonnell Council election results

4 September 2017

The twelve members elected to the third council of the MacDonnell Regional Council where declared today by the NT Electoral Commission.

Elections were conducted in two of the four MacDonnell Regional Council wards. Final preference counting concluded for Luritja Pintubi Ward and Rodinga Ward over the weekend. The remaining two wards, Iyarrka Ward and Ljirapinta Ward, each received the same number of nominations as their required number of councillor positions so no vote was required in those wards.

Earlier today the NT Electoral Commission joined candidates and staff from the MacDonnell Regional Council and the Central Desert Regional Council at their shared council chambers at Bagot Street in Alice Springs to declare all election results.

The declared third council or the MacDonnell Regional Council includes:
