Monday 21 August 2107
Early voting for Inner West Council elections has commenced.
Inner West Council elections are on Saturday 9 September 2017.
Postal and pre-poll voting are the only options for early voting in the upcoming Council election, as there is no absent voting at local government elections
Postal voting is available for anyone unable to attend a polling place on election day during polling hours (8am – 6pm).
Applications for postal votes are open at http://www.votensw.info/early_voting/postal_voting or by calling 1300 135 736.

Voting is compulsory in areas where elections are being held (such as Inner West Council), and citizens can check they are correctly enrolled at the enrolment verification facility.
While electoral rolls for each council area were printed on Monday 31 July, it is still possible to update names or addresses at a pre-poll venue or polling place, through a process known as ‘Enrol and Vote’.
