We provide a range of voting aids to ensure that the right to vote is not limited by language, disability or circumstance.
Large print files
Large print files covering key dates and information specific to a particular election's enrolment, nomination and voting requirements are available upon request during State elections and local council elections.
Magnifiers and maxi pencils are available at each voting centre for State and local council attendance elections.
If you cannot find them, please speak to an election official.
Closed circuit television
Closed circuit television (CCTV) equipment is available for voters with low vision at most State elections.
Voting using CCTV equipment involves placing a ballot paper under a camera that magnifies it on a television screen.
Electronically assisted voting
Electronically assisted voting is available at State elections for voters who are blind or who have low vision, for whom English is a second language or who have literacy difficulties, or those with motor or mobility limitations.
Electronically assisted voting enables eligible voters to cast an independent vote without the assistance of others.
MP3 audio files detailing key dates, enrolment, and nomination and voting details are made available on this site in conjunction with key electoral events and announcements.
All audio files are located on the accessible audio page.
If you have a hearing impairment and need to contact the VEC by phone, there are several options available.
Accessible voting screens
Every voting centre has at least one wheelchair accessible voting screen (a lower and wider voting screen) or a tabletop voting screen.
An election official can direct you to these facilities.
