Election day

In 2020, election day is 19 September. There is a ban on all political advertising, including social media, on election day.

State servants are strongly encouraged to vote. You can volunteer to work in the election administration by, for example, helping at voting places.

On election night, the Electoral Commission publishes the preliminary results for each party and electorate candidate. The preliminary results give an early indication about where the vote is going before the final count is complete. The chief electoral officer declares the official results up to three weeks after voting closes.
