Regular local Liberal volunteers Jo and Jean Starcevich were handing out how to vote cards at the Esperance Court House’s pre-polling station, and were surprised when a local electoral officer told them and two Nationals volunteersto move on.

According to the Electoral Commission regulation, volunteers atpre-polling stations arerequired to maintain asix-metre boundary from the location where voters cast their ballots.

Ms Starcevich said at previous elections when the polling was held at the Court Housethey were allowed to stand inside the building –maintaining six metres from the ballot box rather than the building itself.

However, according to the volunteer, the local electoralofficer said this wasn’t the case.

Nationals volunteer and upper house candidate for the agricultural region Colin de Grussa saidit seemed each electoralofficerinterpreted rules surrounding localpolling stations differently.

Mr de Grussa said both him and Nationals volunteer Henry Webb had attended a briefing through theElectoral Commission earlier in the year and fully understood the ruling aroundproximity to the polling station.

He also stated thatother than campaign signs and banners for the candidates there was no indication the Court House was a pre-polling location.

The only sign the Electoral Commission had up was small, on the door of the Court House and was put up by Mr de Grussa.

A spokesperson for the Electoral Commission said they understood there were concerns about noise affecting neighbouring tenancies.

“We also understand that campaign workers are still able to hand out ballot material and are doing so,” a spokesperson stated.

Esperance Police senior sergeant Richard Moore said no official move on notices were issuedto local volunteers and declined further comment on the matter.

More than 30 early voting centres are open throughout the state to meet elector demand, which is expected to be high.

A list of locations is available on the Electoral Commission’s website 梧桐夜网elections.wa.gov419论坛or for the Esperance region –located onthe map below.

Postal vote applications can also be lodged directly via the website, with application forms also available at local post offices.

Assistance for electors is available via the elections helpline 13 63 06.
