23:21 – What happens at an election count?

  1. Postal ballot and other boxes are returned from polling stations to the auditorium.
  2. Staff verify the number of ballot papers matches the number of papers issued. The returning officer then issues a statement showing how many ballot papers have been received against how many ballot papers were expected. Counting cannot begin until this has been completed.
  3. Counting then begins and ballot papers are sorted by candidates. The returning officer will share the provisional result with candidates at which point a recount can be requested.

The returning officer will then declare the number of votes cast for each candidate and announce the name of the successful candidate.
