- The site of a former Bunnings in Melbourne’s outer north-west will host drive-through voting for the state election.
- The service will only be open to COVID-positive voters with evidence of a positive RAT or PCR.
- The site will be open on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.
A similar measure was put in place for South Australia’s state election in March, when COVID-positive people were allowed to drive to a designated pick-up site to collect a voting pack and return their ballot via post.
Where is the drive-through voting site and who is eligible?
“We need to provide at least one option, even if it’s not a very convenient one.”
“It will take a little longer and I ask for voters who use the service to be as patient as possible.”
Can I vote by phone if I have COVID?
Will I get fined if I don’t vote because I have COVID?
“Should any person who is COVID-positive not be able to vote on election day, we will certainly take that into consideration,” she said.
