Aus elections & voting

Post by Splatted » Sun, 27 Aug 2006 2:29 pm

I'm wondering what do other Aussies do when it comes to voting for State & Federal elections, whilst in Singapore.

The Victorian election is this November. Is there a place where aussies can go to vote in Singapore, or do you register as a postal voter?

Thanks in advance for any replies

Hi Splatted

We decided that postal voting was a pain, and have now taken ourselves off the list, which means you have to re -enrol when you go back. It also depends on how long you are going to be overseas etc.

Not sure where you could lodge votes here, we did so in HongKong at the High Commission, so perhaps it is the same here.

I suggest you go to the AEC website for full details, hopefully this link works! :)
