If you find it difficult to get to a polling place on election day, you can apply to become a general postal voter to receive your ballot papers in the mail. The AEC provides mobile polling to some hospitals, assistance at polling places and disabled access at some polling places. Information on accessible polling places is available at election time from this website.
If you have a physical disability that prevents you from writing, you can get someone else to complete and sign an enrolment form for persons unable to sign their name on your behalf.
