Close of Polling
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 3 weeks to complete and post your vote back to the returning officer. The polling period for the Glenorchy City Council election is between Tuesday 19 December 2017 to 10am Tuesday 16 January 2018.
If you are outside of Tasmania during the polling period, you may apply for an express vote.
