Before You Vote

The Thinking Woman’s (or man) sex symbol Antony Green has put together information on the North Sydney Electorate and details of all the candidates.You can find out more here.

Lane Cove’s very own Brigid Glanville is part of a new ABC Show on Friday nights on the ABC News Channel starting this week 8pm – 9pm AEST … for your weekly wrap of state and federal politics. Get your glass of vino or cup of tea and come along for the ride.

What If I Forget To Vote?

If it appears you didn’t vote at an election you were eligible for in New South Wales, you will be sent a formal penalty notice in the post. The penalty for not voting in New South Wales is a $55 fine. You must respond within 28 days of the issue date of the notice.

You will have four options:

  1. If you voted, you can provide details of where and when using the non-voter self-service portal.
  2. If you did not vote, you can pay the fine using the non-voter self-service portal.
  3. If you did not vote and you think you have a valid reason, you can tell the electoral commission in writing.
  4. If you want to dispute the matter, you can apply to have it heard in court. (A court may impose a penalty for an offence of failing to vote of $110 plus court costs.)

If you do not reply within 28 days, you will be sent one reminder notice to respond, before the matter  is referred to Revenue NSW for further action.
