Queensland Local Elections
The Electoral Commission of Queensland (ECQ) has announced there will be a Queensland Local Government Election on Saturday, 28 April 2012.
Any elector who wants to apply for a postal vote in the Queensland Local Government Election should complete the 'Application for a Ballot Paper' (Form 12) which is available on the Electoral Commission of Queensland's website (www.ecq.qld.gov.au) If electors do not have internet access, a copy of the 'Application for a Ballot Paper' form can be collected from the Australian Consulate General in Auckland or the Australian High Commission in Wellington. Contact details for the Consulate General and High Commission are available here.
The form must be completed by the elector and either faxed by the elector to: +61 7 3036 5770 or scanned and emailed by the elector to: firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible. For the Local Government Election the form must be returned no later than 6pm (Queensland time) on Wednesday, 25 April 2012.
Note: The email and fax details written on the actual Form 12 'Application for a Ballot Paper' are different to those listed above. This is because the details above are specifically for overseas electors.
