Eligible voters can use phone or internet for election
ELIGIBLE Clarence Valley voters now have the option to vote in the upcoming State election using the internet or telephone.
The iVote system provides accessible voting for people who may otherwise have difficulty casting their vote at a polling place. This includes electors who are blind, vision impaired, have a disability, have literacy needs, live more than 20km from a polling place or who are outside NSW on election day.
"The iVote system allows a range of people to vote unassisted," Electoral Commissioner Colin Barry said.
"Approximately 330,000 NSW electors with disabilities and 30,000 electors in remote, rural areas might also benefit from using the iVote system."
Registrations close at 1pm EDST on election day, March 28. Once registered, electors can vote using the iVote system from now until to 6pm EDST election day.
