Group voting tickets

For State elections

Group voting tickets inform the voter how preferences will be directed for a vote 'above the line'. That is, if the voter selects a group or party above the line on the ballot paper, the voter's preferences are deemed to follow the group voting ticket. Group voting tickets apply for the State Legislative Council (Upper House).

Registered parties or groups of candidates can lodge up to three group voting tickets with the VEC. All group voting tickets are available in every voting centre and will be published on this website for public information.
