Australian Electoral Commission (AEC) electoral commissioner Tom Rogers says everyone should try to vote on election day on Saturday, May 21.
The 2022 federal election will take place in Australia on 21 May. The Australian people will choose the members of the 47th Parliament.
The election is fast approaching. It’s important that you plan ahead to ensure your vote is counted.
Almost 97 percent of eligible Australians will vote on that day
AEC electoral commissioner Tim rogers says Australian elections are in-person events – once every three years the country comes together in a transparent and secure environment to have their say.
If your circumstances might prevent you from doing that then you need to think about the early voting options available, and vote according to your circumstances.
Early Voting Centres Across Wyndham Include :
* Stockland Point Cook Shopping Centre;
* Unit 4, 419-425 Old Geelong Road, Hoppers Crossing;
* Unit 4, 383 Boundary Road, Truganina; and
* Werribee Masonic Centre.
“Not everyone will be happy if there is a queue or agree with the Covid safety measures in place, but our temporary staff are simply carrying out instructions and doing their job to the best of their ability.” said Rogers
“We simply ask that Australians be patient while waiting to cast their vote and maybe give our staff a smile and a thank you on the way through.”
