The NSW Electoral Commissioner John Schmidt said enrolled residents of West Ward must vote. Residents enrolled in the East or Central Wards cannot vote.

“Postal votes received by the NSW Electoral Commission after 6pm on Friday, October 28 will not be included in the count. Post your vote as soon as possible to allow for Australia Post delivery timeframes,” he said.
