If you want to vote early then tomorrow is you last chance to take advantage of the early voting that has been available over the last week from 8am til 6pm and it closes tomorrow evening Friday, March 22.
‘To date, a total of 845,779 people have taken up early voting,’ said NSW electoral commissioner John Schmidt.
‘This includes 670,998 people who have voted in person at 194 early voting centres around the state.
‘We have received 23,762 postal votes so far, 144,259 people have voted via iVote internet and telephone voting and we have taken mobile voting to 6,760 people at declared facilities including nursing homes, aged care facilities and hospitals.’
There are 5,220,445 people that were enrolled to vote in NSW as at 31 December 2018 so there are still quite a few who need to get to a polling booth this Saturday to ensure their voices are heard.
Mr Schmidt said early voting was likely to peak today and tomorrow.
‘Postal vote applications have closed, but people can register to use iVote internet and telephone voting up until 1pm on election day,’ he said.
