iVote registration update
The NSW Electoral Commission has confirmed that problems have been experienced today with the iVote registration system.
NSW Electoral Commissioner John Schmidt said voting using iVote has not been impacted by the issue.
“To date, 227,521 people have registered for iVote and 187,559 votes have been cast,” he said.
“The problem relating to online registrations has resulted in increased call volumes to our call centre.
“Our call centre is still processing registrations, however some people have been reaching a pre-recorded message asking them to call back later. This is due to the high volume of calls.
“We are currently working to resolve the iVote registration problem and apologise for the inconvenience.
“We have taken more than 34,000 calls today and will be open today to take iVote calls until 11pm AEDT.
“The call centre will re-open at 8am tomorrow morning.”
