This means there is a 'polling period', rather than one polling day as for State Parliamentary elections. Every elector receives their very own postal ballot pack at their enrolled address. You then have around 3 weeks to complete and post your vote back to the returning officer for your council. The polling period for this election is between Tuesday 19 December 2017 to 10am Tuesday 16 January 2018.
When voting, be aware that successful candidates for mayor and deputy mayor must also be elected as councillors to be able to accept the office of mayor or deputy mayor.
If you are outside of Tasmania during the 19 December 2017 to 10am Tuesday 16 January 2018 polling period, you may apply for an express vote.
