Voters who haven’t received their ballot pack by Wednesday 12 October should call 1300 593 485 during business hours to arrange a replacement.

Candidates who have nominated to stand for election are listed in the ballot packs and at Where provided by candidates, a photo and statement will be included. Voters can also view candidates’ answers to the candidate questionnaire online.
