New voting option for people with disability

Date: 09/01/2017

People with disability can cast their vote for the upcoming 2017 State general election from the location of their choice, thanks to a new voting system.

The Western Australian Electoral Commission has developed iVote, a form of voting using a telephone or the internet.  iVote is compatible with a number of screen reader software platforms.

Registration for iVote is between 13 February 2017 and 10 March 2017. There will also be an opportunity to practice using iVote before registration opens.

  • For more information, please visit the iVote webpage on the Western Australian Electoral Commission’s website.
