The following steps take you through the processes after your vote is received.
before close of polling at 2pm Tuesday.
After the 2pm close, two processes happen in parallel:
Delivery - All ballots hand-delivered at each Council will be transferred to the TEC office in Moonah
Extraction - For the ballots already with the TEC, staff will extract the ballot papers from the declaration envelopes and balance.
As each council delivery arrives at the TEC, those ballot packs will be checked off the roll, declaration slips removed, votes extracted and added to those already prepared.
The first provisional results for smaller ballots will begin to be published on our website from around midday.
