iVote available for residents unable to cast vote in person

ONLINE voting will be available to New South Wales residents who live in remote areas or are unable to leave home at next year's state election.

The iVote system, which allows those who struggle to get to a ballot box to still have their say, was approved by the NSW Government following the success of a similar system in 2011.

NSW Electoral Commissioner Colin Barry told reporters on Wednesday iVote was open to electors who through disability or location, had difficulty casting their vote.

Plans for next year's iVote strategy have been posted online to encourage feedback before guidelines are set.

More details can be found at http://www.elections.nsw.gov.au

Comments can be made to ivote@elections.nsw.gov.au until 5pm on Friday, August 30.
