Due to scheduled maintenance, parts of this website will not be available from 9pm on Friday, 22 January 2016 until 9pm on Saturday, 23 January 2016.
This site is the main, day to day, New South Wales Electoral Commission website.
At the time of a NSW State election or state-wide Local Government elections a specific event site (www.votensw.info) will be available. Key details relevant to the particular event will be found on that site.
City of Botany Bay - Council Merger Community Poll
The Council of the City of Botany Bay will conduct a non-compulsory poll on Saturday, 27 February 2016. This poll will ask electors ‘Do you agree that the City of Botany Bay should merge with Rockdale City Council?'
NSWEC is not administering this poll; enquiries should be directed to the council. For further information on the poll, please visit the council website.
Council Boundary Review
In December 2015, the NSW Government announced its proposal to create new councils in NSW. The proposal will see a number of existing neighbouring local councils merged. For further information on the process, please visit the Council Boundary Review website.
The NSWEC has begun issuing over 350,000 letters to electors who apparently failed to vote at the March 2015 State General Election. Electors have a number of options to deal with the matters raised by those letters. If you have received such a letter, please visit our Penalties for not Voting webpage where those options are explained in more detail.
