Important Early Voting Information

If you will be away and you are unable to get to a polling booth on election day then you can vote early from 20 February 2017.

Vote early in person

Early voting in person is available at a wide range of locations across Western Australia before polling day.

Early voting is also available for electors who are travelling interstate or overseas. Early voting centres are usually located at the electoral commissions of other states and territories or at Australian embassies.

Mobile Voting

During an election, the Commission will visit hospitals and selected institutions such as nursing homes, aged care facilities and retirement homes to provide electors the opportunity to vote without having to leave their premises.

In addition, mobile polling teams visit a selection of Indigenous communities, mine sites and other places in the more remote parts of Western Australia in order to offer voting services.

Mobile polling is only available to residents or patients at these facilities. Staff and visitors can vote early at an early voting centre, or at a polling place on polling day.

Assisted Voting

Electors eligible to use iVote are those who may require assistance because they have insufficient literacy skills or have sight impairment or are otherwise incapacitated.
