Dear Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Communications,

I'm requesting documentation of the names of local government councils that had uncontested elections last time around.

Yours faithfully,

John Smith

FOI, Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Communications


Good morning Mr Smith

The delivery of local government elections is the responsibility of the respective state or territory electoral commissions. As such, your request does not relate to matters for which this Department is responsible and we would not hold any documents relevant to your request.

To assist you, details of each state or territory Electoral Commission can be found here:

The Commonwealth Freedom of Information Act does not have a mechanism to transfer requests from Commonwealth government agencies to state/territory government agencies. As such, could you please confirm that you are willing to withdraw your request with this Department, and pursue the request for information with the relevant state/territory Electoral Commissions.

With kind regards
FOI Coordinator
