If I am working or away from home, where do I go to vote?


According to the qualifications of an elector, an elector must vote in the polling division of the electoral district in which he or she is ordinary resident.

An elector is considered to have only one place of ordinary residence, and is defined as:

  • if the person is a married person
    • at the place where his or her family lives and sleeps and to which, when away, he or she intends to return, or
    • if he or she is living apart from his or her family with the intent to remain so apart from it, then at the place where he or she lives and sleeps and to which, when away, he or she intends to return, without regard to where he or she takes his or her meals or is employed; and
  • if the person is not married, at the place where he or she lives and sleeps the majority of the time.
