Helpful Information about the State Election on 17 March Featured

The South Australian State Election will be held on Saturday 17 March 2018.  Voting in the State Election is compulsory.  If you are unable to attend a polling booth to vote on this day, you may apply for a postal vote or you can vote early at a pre-polling centre.

 

Postal vote applications can be downloaded from the Electoral Commission SA website.  Hard copies are also available from any post office or from my office at 4 Byron Street, Glenelg.  Alternatively, phone my office on 8294 6711 and an application will be emailed or posted to you. 

Pre-poll voting centres will be open between 9am and 5pm weekdays from Monday 5 March until Friday 16 March (excluding the public holiday on 12 March).  A list of pre-poll locations can be found on the Electoral Commission SA website.

The Electoral Commission SA has also released the digital Easy Vote App.  It is available to download free via Google Play and from the Itunes Store.  The App provides you with the same information as the voting card that would be posted to your registered address ahead of the State Election on 17 March.  The App also includes mapping of all polling booths with current wait times on election day, as well as information about candidates and ‘how to vote’ instructions. 

Showing your opened App to the polling official on election day will help get your name crossed off the roll quickly as it provides the page and roll number for the official to locate you easily.  By downloading the App prior to 23 February you will NOT receive a voting card in the post.  All the required information will be on your phone, easily found on election day.

Don't forget to enrol or update your details online by noon Friday 23 February 2018.
