2021 State general election timeline

The next State general election is planned for Saturday 13 March 2021.

This will be the third State election since amendments to the Electoral Act 1907 in 2011, which fixed general elections for both houses of parliament as being held on the second Saturday in March every four years.

The timeline for the 2021 election shows that the election writs are scheduled to be issued on the first Wednesday of February and nominations for candidate positions will open thereafter.

Rolls will close at 6.00pm, Thursday 11 February. In person early voting will run for 2.5 weeks commencing on Wednesday 24 February.
