MEMBERSHIP AND VOTING

VOTING AND NON-VOTING MEMBERS

The provisions concerning membership and voting rights are set out in the Aboriginal Land Rights Act in sections 53 to 56.

An Aboriginal person can be a member of more than one Local Aboriginal Land Council (LALC), but can only be a voting member of one LALC at any one time. If you are a member of more than one LALC you can nominate the LALC where you want to vote. You can only change your voting nomination once in any 12 month period.

To vote in elections for the LALC Board, members must have attended at least two meetings in the previous 12 months as a voting member.

LALC CEOs must record whether each member has voting rights in the LALC's membership roll.
