The Federal Election – postal voting

Wednesday 21 July 2010

VotingAustralia will be holding a Federal Election on Saturday 21 August 2010.

  • a patient at a hospital or nursing home and unable to travel to a polling place
  • unable to travel due to being infirm at home
  • caring for a seriously ill or infirm person
  • serving a prison sentence of less than 3 years
  • registered as a silent elector
