How to complete your ballot paper

When voting at a First Nations Voice election you will be given a ballot paper showing all the candidates for your region.

To vote, you must write a number 1 in the box next to the name and photo of the candidate who is your first choice.

If you want to, you can vote for more candidates. Write the number 2 in the box next to the candidate who is your second choice, the number 3 in the box next to the candidate who is your third choice and so on.

Continue on until you have voted for all the candidates you want to.

You don’t have to number every box.

Remember, it’s your choice how many candidates you vote for.

You don’t have to vote for more than 1 candidate, but your Local First Nations Voice will have 7 or 11 elected representatives, so it is a good idea to vote for multiple candidates to represent you.

If you only vote 1, your vote can only help 1 candidate to get elected. The more candidates you vote for, the more you can help your preferred candidates get elected.

Make sure your vote counts!

  • Remember, use numbers only. Don’t use ticks and crosses.
  • When you have finished your vote, check carefully to make sure you haven’t repeated any numbers or missed any numbers.
  • If you make a mistake, just cross it out and write the correct number next to the square.
  • And if you need any help, just talk to a member of staff.
