Ways to vote

Postal Voting
You can easily apply online for a postal vote here anytime from 4 February 2021 or an application form can be mailed to you by contacting the Commission’s Call Centre on 13 63 06 from this date. Ballot paper packages won't be posted to you until after nominations close on 12 February. If posted on or before polling day, completed postal packages can be accepted via mail until 9:00am on the Thursday following election day (18 March).

Early in person voting
You can vote any time from Wednesday 24 February at one of the numerous Early Voting Centres across WA, or at selected locations interstate and overseas. Click here for locations and opening hours once these are available in late January. Most of the centres in WA will also be open on Saturday 6 March. You don’t need a reason to apply for an early vote.

Mobile polling
Electors in hospitals, aged care facilities, remote Aboriginal communities or mine sites and some other institutions may be visited by a mobile polling team in the two-week period before election day. This will depend in part on the status of the COVID-19 pandemic. Locations and visit times will be published here once finalised in late January.

Telephone assisted voting
Electors with a vision impairment, insufficient literacy or an incapacity that means they can’t vote without assistance, are eligible to apply for a telephone assisted vote by calling 136 800 (+61 8 9214 7290 if overseas) from Wednesday 24 February onwards.

Election day voting
On election day, Saturday 13 March, you will still be able to vote between 8.00am and 6.00pm at over 700 polling places through WA. You can cast an ordinary vote at a polling place in your district or an absent vote at polling places located elsewhere. Click here to find your nearest polling place.
