Nominations open for SA First Nations Voice

29 Jan 2024

The SA First Nations Voice to Parliament election will be held on Saturday, 16 March, and candidate nominations opened on 22 January (to close 5 pm 12 February).

Early Voting Centres will open from 6 March and postal voting is also available.  

Our region is one of six which will elect Local Voice representatives (7 in our region) and from there, two reps are chosen to serve on the State Voice advisory body.

This new advisory body comprised of community members will then serve to provide advice on laws, policies, and programs to government, through a direct line of communication with key decision-makers.

Only Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders on the South Australian electoral roll can vote.

There will be polling booths across the state where eligible electors can vote in person. Locations will be publicised closer to polling day.

If you are unable to attend a polling booth or early voting centre, postal vote applications will be available from 1 February 2024 at selected locations across the state or can be downloaded from this website (from 1 February 2024) or by calling 1300 655 232.

Complete the application and return it to ECSA to receive your postal voting pack.
