Vote early vote often… or at least vote early…

By simbo 3 October 2008 2

If you’re going to be interstate on election date, or you just want to get your vote out of the way so that you can look at every political manouvre from now to the end of the election and think “well, I already voted” – pre-polling is available now – 9-5 every weekday before the election (excluding the public holiday Monday).

Locations are:

Belconnen – Belconnen Community Centre, Swanson Court
Civic – Pilgrim House, 69 Northbourne Ave
Gungahlin – Biralee Scout Hall, 5 The Valley Way
Tuggernong – Salvation Army Hall, Corner of Anketell and Reed St
Woden – Smith Family, Corner of Easty St and Launceston St

Also, if you’re an interstate reader who’s still registered to vote in Canberra, you’ll need to get your voting done before election day – there’s pre-polling available in all state capitals as well as Nowra, Goulburn and Narrandera – for further details on locations, go to
the ACT Electoral Commission site.

[ED – Anyone know why Narrandera?]

Pre-poll votes are always counted. Because an election result cannot be declared until the final results are known.
They are often counted last though, along with postals, in the case of Federal elections.

Does the pre-poll vote actually count? I seem to recall in one flavour of elections (may be federal??), that the pre-poll and postal votes are not counted until the result is really close, and in which case they are opened and added in.

Or have I got this totally wrong??

Someone edumacate me, please! 🙂
