Replacement ballot papers are available for voters enrolled to vote in the 2019 City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder Local Government Elections if their ballot papers are lost or spoiled.
City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder CEO John Walker said enrolled voters who have not received their ballot papers, and voters who have made mistakes on their ballot papers, can come to the City’s Administration Building to have their original ballot cancelled and new voting papers reissued.
Enrolled voters who have not yet received their voting package or use a PO Box address are encouraged to check if their voting package has been sent there.
“We have been receiving feedback from the community that some people haven’t received their papers, and others have made mistakes when completing their ballots,” he said.
“For a new ballot to be issued, people need to come into the City’s main Administration Building and complete a form, which our officers will then need to enter into the Electoral Commission portal to cancel their original voting package. A new package will then be issued to them. This process won’t take more than about ten minutes.
“Voters can then complete their voting then and there and place it into the ballot box, or they can take it home to complete and post it. There are no other ballot boxes around the City, they can only be put in the ballot box at the Admin Building.”
The City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder Administration Building is located at 577 Hannan Street, and is open between 8:30am and 4:30pm Monday to Friday. Voters who need to update their mailing address can contact the WA Electoral Commission on 13 63 06.
