Voting underway for Victoria’s State election

Voting has commenced for the 2014 State election, with early voting now available for voters who can’t vote on election day — Saturday 29 November.

Voters can vote early at any early voting centre. One hundred early voting centres have opened across the State and will operate until 6.00 pm on Friday 28 November.

Voting is also available for extended hours at Melbourne and Avalon airports for voters who will be travelling interstate or overseas during the election period.

Details of voting centre locations and hours of operation are available online at votingcentrelookup.vec.vic.gov.au, by calling 131 832, or on the Vote Victoria app — a free app now available from iTunes and Google Play stores.

Everyone on the State electoral roll, as at 8.00 pm on Tuesday 11 November, will soon receive their EasyVote Guide in the mail, with information about where, how and when to vote. The Guide also includes a cut-out EasyVote Card with details of the voter's district and region to make voting quicker at the voting centre.

Anyone unable to get to an early or election day voting centre, can apply to have their ballot material sent in the mail. A postal vote application form can be downloaded from vec.vic.gov.au, collected from any post office or election office or received in the mail upon request (call 131 832).

Voting is compulsory for all voters enrolled on the State electoral roll at 8.00 pm on Tuesday 11 November 2014.
