Everything You Need to Know About Voting in the 2023 NSW State Election
The 2023 NSW State Election is finally here, and voters across the state will head to the polls to cast their ballots. In this article, we'll take a closer look at everything you need to know about voting in the election, including where to vote, what you need to bring with you, and what to expect on election day.
Where to Vote
There are hundreds of polling booths set up across the state, and voters are assigned to a specific booth based on their address. You can find your assigned polling booth by checking your enrolment online or by contacting the NSW Electoral Commission.
Polling booths will be open from 8 am to 6 pm on election day, and you can vote at any booth within your electoral district. If you're unsure which electoral district you're in, you can check using the NSW Electoral Commission's online tool.Also Read:
What You Need to Bring
When you head to the polling booth, you'll need to bring some form of identification with you. Acceptable forms of ID include a driver's license, passport, or NSW Photo Card. If you don't have any of these forms of ID, you can still vote by providing two other forms of ID that include your name and address.
It's also a good idea to bring a pencil with you to mark your ballot paper. While polling booths will provide pencils, bringing your own ensures you can avoid any potential issues with smudging or other issues.
What to Expect on Election Day
Once you arrive at the polling booth, you'll be directed to a queue based on your surname. Once you reach the front of the queue, you'll be checked off the electoral roll and given a ballot paper.
You'll then be directed to a voting booth, where you can mark your ballot paper. There will be a list of candidates for your electoral district, and you can indicate your preferred candidate by numbering the boxes in order of preference.
After marking your ballot paper, you'll fold it and place it in the ballot box. You can then collect your "democracy sausage" (a popular Australian tradition) and exit the polling booth.
The 2023 NSW State Election is shaping up to be a close race, with both major parties campaigning heavily in the lead-up to the election. Whether you're a seasoned voter or a first-timer, it's important to exercise your right to vote and have your say in the future of the state.
