Time to make your mark!

  1. On your ballot paper, the names of the candidates will be listed alphabetically with an indication of the political party, if any. You may also see a photograph of the candidate and/or a party emblem.
  2. You write ‘1’ in the box beside the name of your first choice
  3. You write ‘2’ in the box beside the name of your second choice and so on
  4. You may stop marking your paper after 1 or any subsequent preference or you may go right down the ballot paper.
