The Electoral Commissioner is responsible for conducting postal elections in Western Australia.
In a short space of time, postal elections have become the dominant means by which electors now choose to participate in local decision-making.
How do I vote?
Postal packages are sent to all eligible electors in a local government by the Western Australian Electoral Commission. They contain information about candidates, ballot papers, a reply paid envelope and an information brochure on how to vote. The ballot papers are sent to the Returning Officer and counted at the local government offices.
Replacement voting papers
If an election is being conducted in your district and you have not received your election package by the due date, you can apply for replacement voting papers (PDF, 31.32 kB).
