You can vote early, either in person or by post, if on polling day you can’t get to a polling place because you:
- are outside the electorate where you are enrolled to vote
- are more than 8km from a polling place
- are travelling
- can’t leave your workplace to vote
- are seriously ill, infirm or due to give birth shortly (or if you
are caring for someone who is)
- are a patient in hospital and can’t vote at the hospital
- have religious beliefs that prevent you from attending a
- are in prison serving a sentence of less than three years
or otherwise detained
- are a silent elector
- have a reasonable fear for your safety.
Carefully consider your options as voting early in person
may be an easier option than voting by post.
