Preparing to vote by telephone

Consider your vote

  • Review the candidates and their profiles and decide your choices before making your call (candidate information is available here after nominations close on 27 January 2023)
  • List the candidates in order of your choice so you can relay this to the voting assistant who will mark the ballot paper accordingly. 

Telephone-assisted voting method

  • You will be asked to verify your identity and your entitlement to vote
  • Once confirmed, you will be assigned a unique identifying number
The ECSA representative will then transfer your call to a voting assistant who will take your vote. The ECSA representative will introduce you to the voting assistant using your unique identifying number only. It is important that you do not share your name or address with the voting assistant as this ensures the secrecy of your vote.
  • Once verified, the voting assistant will confirm the council area in which you can vote
  • The voting assistant will then read the list of candidates on the ballot paper along with the instructions for voting
  • You will then be asked to name candidates in order of your choice starting at 1 for the person you want as your first choice, 2 for your second choice and so on until you have chosen as many candidates as there are vacancies.
  • The voting assistant will read your voting preferences back to you to ensure the ballot paper is marked in accordance with your choices
  • The voting assistant will then fold the ballot paper and place it in a declaration envelope, complete and sign the declaration on your behalf and place the declaration envelope in a sealed ballot box.

Another electoral officer (not the ECSA representative who transferred your call) will listen to the entire telephone conversation with the voting assistant and ensure the ballot paper is marked in accordance with your instructions.
