2014 WA Senate election

Postal vote

It is now too late to apply for a postal vote for the WA Senate election.

If you have received a postal vote, you should complete your ballot paper on or before election day and post it back to the AEC as soon as possible. You only have until Tuesday 22 April 2014 for your ballot paper to be received by the AEC returning officer in your division.

I am unable to vote, what should I do?

If you are unable to vote you should complete and submit an Overseas Notification form [PDF 55KB].

If you do not inform the AEC, we will write to you asking you to explain why you did not vote. If you explain you were overseas, you will not be fined.
