Don’t forget to vote!

Polling Day for the Western Australian 2017 State General Election is this Saturday, 11 March.

Electors at the March State general election will vote for the first time using ballot papers that are different in several ways. Information on how things have changed and how to mark your ballot paper correctly are on the Electoral Commission’s website.

The seat of Collie-Preston has candidates running for WA Labor, Liberal Party, The Nationals, The Greens (WA), the Shooters, Fishers and Farmers party and Pauline Hanson’s One Nation as well as two independent candidates.

At a State election, most people visit a polling place on polling day to cast their vote. People who vote early can visit an early voting location, or complete an early vote by post, or be visited by mobile polling staff.

Polling places on polling day in the Shire of Collie include:

  • Allanson Primary School
  • Collie Senior High School
  • Margaretta Wilson Centre
  • North Collie Hall
  • Wilson Park Primary School

Early voting in person closes 6pm, Friday, 10 March 2017.
