Call for candidates for Narracan District supplementary election

Monday 19 December 2022

For immediate release


Nominations open tomorrow for a member of the Legislative Assembly representing Narracan District. The supplementary election will be held on Saturday 28 January 2023.

‘Prospective candidates should act quickly to ensure they don’t miss out on lodging their nomination,’ Acting Electoral Commissioner Dana Fleming said.

Candidates can nominate between 9 am and 12 noon this week, from Tuesday 20 to Friday 23 December. The nomination period will then continue from Tuesday 3 January 2023, after the Christmas and New Year holiday period.

Registered political parties must nominate their endorsed candidates by 12 noon on Thursday 12 January 2023 at the VEC head office.

Independent candidates must lodge their completed nomination form, including 6 nominators, along with the $350 deposit, with the Narracan District election manager by 12 noon on Friday 13 January 2023 at the election office in Warragul.

To help reduce application processing time, independent candidates can pre-fill their nomination form at vec.vic.gov.au using the Candidate Helper application. They can then print the form and take it to the election office with the nomination fee when nominating.

Nomination forms are available online at vec.vic.gov.au or by contacting the election manager directly on 03 9678 1412 from tomorrow.

Details of nominated candidates will be progressively published on the VEC website.

The election manager will conduct a ballot draw to determine the position of the candidates on the ballot paper at the election office at 1 pm on Friday 13 January 2023. Candidates and media are invited to attend.

More information is available on the VEC website at vec.vic.gov.au or by calling 131 832.
