Election Outcome

The Conservation Society congratulates Trish Doyle (Labor) on her re‑election.

At the close of counting on the night of the election she had 54% of the primary vote.


The 2023 NSW State Election will be held on Saturday 25 March with pre-poll voting beginning a week earlier.

The Society's theme for this election is "The Blue Mountains - Let It Be".

The Blue Mountains that we know and love continues to be under threat. Our Threats webpage describes these threats and includes videos explaining them.

A questionnaire was sent to all known candidates with a firm closing date of the 5 March. Their responses are now on the website.

A Candidates' Forum was held on 25 February where candidates had the opportunity to address the meeting and were asked questions from the audience.


Electoral rolls closed on Monday 6th March.

Pre-poll voting opens on Saturday 18 March at three locations in the Blue Mountains - at Katoomba, Springwood and Blaxland.
