PERTH residents have a few days left to vote in the Marriage Law Postal Survey and Local Government Elections.

Marriage Law Postal Survey

People who would still like to vote in the Marriage Law Postal Survey have until 6pm tomorrow to request a form from the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS).

ABS Deputy Statistician and Taskforce Lead, Jonathan Palmer, said the quickest and easiest way to get a survey form is to use the ABS website’s online enquiry form.

“You will be asked to supply personal information, such as a driver’s licence or Australian passport, so the ABS can verify your identity, send you a new survey form and invalidate any previous forms so only one response counts,” Mr Palmer said.

As of last Friday, the ABS estimates it has received 10.8 million (67.5 per cent) of survey forms.

Local Government Elections

It is too late to mail Local Government Election ballot papers for counting on Saturday, but electors can drop envelopes to the local council office during business hours or throughout the day on Saturday by 6pm.

The local council office can also issue fresh ballot papers for registered voters who did not receive one.
