The AEC is factoring in the rapidly changing COVID-19 environment into our provision of voting services and throughout the broader by-election process.
For this by-election, we are implementing a range of safety measures, consistent with advice sought from government health authorities. This will include guidance for voters regarding appropriate social distancing and hygiene in the polling place. Hand sanitiser will be available and voting screens will be regularly cleaned by AEC staff.
The AEC acknowledges the Traditional Owners of country throughout Australia and recognises their continuing connection to land, waters, culture and community. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging.
