Labor had one more seat with 26 seats to the Coalition's 25. Three new national parties will be contested these elections. The Southerners Party is a regionalist party that advocates for the southern parts of House Hold. The Progressive Green Party is a small party the split of from the Green Party and Progressive Party.

This will be the first time any election in House Hold is run using the D'Hondt method with an open list. All 50 local councillors will be elected using this system in 12 councils. In three seat councils a party will need about 25% for a seat, in a four seat councils 20%, and so on. However party can be elected with much lower shares if many parties are contesting a council.
Voters could choose between voting for a candidate, or voting for a political party. The votes for parties are given among the candidates for that party. This can be done in according to their personal votes, or by giving them to candidates in list order.
For a new party to become eligible to participate in the election, they must be supported by a number of voters equal to 25.0% of all valid votes cast in the last election. If a council has more that 5 people one new voter is need for every 1/3 vote. Staring in 2022 this will be the system for parties to contest general elections as well.
All people living in House Hold for 2+ weeks can vote.
The total number of eligible voters at the 2021 election will likely be 222.
Each councils is given Councillors based on population. Councils choose from this system how many seats they want from this range.
