Postal voting

If you have not yet applied for a postal vote and you are overseas, it is now too late to be sent a postal vote.  Applications for overseas postal votes closed at 5pm Canberra time Friday 7 October 2016.  

To be counted, you must have voted on or before 15 October and your postal vote must reach Elections ACT by Friday 21 October 2016.

Unable to postal vote or pre-poll?

If you are unable to make it to a pre-poll voting centre and, as it is too late to apply for a postal vote for an overseas address, it is important that you contact Elections ACT before polling day to let us know you will not be able to vote.  If you have a valid and sufficient reason for failing to vote, you will not be fined.
