Voters will be able to go to one of the 80 polling places spread across the ACT, with polls open at 8am until 6pm.
ACT Electoral Commissioner Phil Green says voters who live in or near Bonner, Braddon, Bruce, Charnwood, Dickson, Downer, Forde, Garran, Gungahlin, Higgins, Holt, Kambah, Reid and Yarralumla may find that their local polling place has changed.
Addresses of polling places were in the ACT Electoral Commission Election Guide delivered to all households last week, and will be published in tomorrow’s The Canberra Times.
“How-to-vote cards are banned within 100 metres of polling places,” Green says.
“This means that voters need to plan in advance how they want to vote.
“To record your vote, write the numbers 1,2,3,4,5,6,7 and so on, in the candidate squares on the ballot paper in the order of your choice. Make sure you don’t use ticks or crosses, and don’t use the same number twice.”
Election results will start to come into the Tally Room after the polls close at 6pm. They will also be displayed on the internet at the Elections ACT website.
Members of the public are invited to attend the ACT Tally Room, which will be located at the Reid campus of the Canberra Institute of Technology, Constitution Avenue Reid.
