Voting for party and person

Ballot papers

Ballot papers can be found at all polling stations and are available from all parties.

Voting for a party

Primarily, you vote for a party. The party’s name is on the ballot paper. If you cannot find your party’s ballot paper, you can write your party’s name on a blank ballot paper.

Personal votes

If you wish to cast a vote for a specific person among the party’s candidates, you can mark this with an ‘x’ on the ballot paper in the box beside the candidate that you would prefer to see elected. You can only cast a personal vote for one candidate.

You can also cast a personal vote by writing the party’s name and the candidate’s name on a blank ballot paper.
