The Councillors represent ten divisions, and each Councillor is elected by eligible voters in each division. The Mayoralty is decided on a majority popular vote across the entire local government area which has over 94,000 enrolled voters. You can view information on the individual divisions and their Councillors below.
Note: Following de-amalgamation of the Douglas Shire in January 2014, Cairns Regional Council's electoral divisions no longer contain a comparable share of electors. The Electoral Commission has prepared nine new boundaries for the 2016 Local Government elections. Maps showing the new and existing divisional boundaries, together with reference materials and statistics, are available for viewing on the ECQ website. Note: the existing 2012 boundaries remain in force until the local government elections on Saturday 19 March 2016.
