Voting at Local Government Elections

Local government elections in Tasmania are a full postal ballot.

  This means there is a 'polling period', rather than one polling day as for State Parliamentary elections. Every elector will be sent their very own postal ballot pack at their postal address. You then have around 4 weeks to complete and post your vote back to the returning officer. The polling period for the Glamorgan-Spring Bay by-elections is from Tuesday 4 August to 10am Tuesday 1 September 2020.
