Detailed election information and procedures, as well as requirements regarding campaigning, nominating and submitting candidate statements.
Note, major changes to election campaigning limits were announced 2 August.
This means there is a 'polling period', rather than one polling day as for State Parliamentary elections. Every elector will be sent their very own postal ballot pack at their postal address. You then have around 3 weeks to complete and post your vote back to the returning officer. The polling period for the 2018 elections is from the week of the 8th October to 10am Tuesday 30 October 2018.
