Cast a special vote

If you haven't enrolled to vote, or your voting pack is damaged or lost, you will need to cast a special vote.

What is a special vote?

You can cast a special vote if you have not received a voting pack in the mail, lost or damaged your voting pack, or not enrolled to vote on time.

A special vote pack consists of:

  • a special voting document
  • a special voting declaration
  • two envelopes.

Who can cast a special vote

Special votes are available to people:

  • who did not receive a voting pack posted to them
  • whose names do not appear on the final electoral roll, but who qualify as electors
  • who spoil or damage a voting document previously posted to them
  • who will be travelling during the voting period.
