Electoral Structure

For electoral purposes, Manningham is divided into three Wards, being Heide Ward, Koonung Ward and Mullum Mullum Ward. Each Ward is represented by three councillors making a Council of nine councillors.

A Ward is the electorate that a Councillor represents. It is broadly equivalent to a 'seat' in State or Federal elections.

Wards are devised on the basis of communities of similar interest or similar areas; and a statutory requirement for each Ward not to vary from other Wards in number of voters by more than plus or minus 10 per cent.
