Where to Pre Poll in Lane Cove

In Lane Cove, you can pre-poll at the Lane Cove Council Chambers from 22 November to 3 December 2021.

Recent amendments to the Local Government Act 1993 and Local Government (General) Regulation 2021 mean that voters will have a longer period in which to apply for, receive and return postal voting packs.

Postal vote applications are open from today, Tuesday 26 October, and postal votes must be received by 6 pm, 17 December.

All polling places will be run in line with COVID-safe election guidelines including physical distancing, mask-wearing, single-use pens and queue management. Signage and staff will direct voters to check-in and comply with NSW Health advice.
