By-elec­tion vot­ing this Satur­day

Southern Riverina news - - NEWS -

Res­i­dents in the NSW Murray elec­torate go to the polls on Satur­day to vote for a new lo­cal mem­ber.

Six can­di­dates (meet them on page 6) have nom­i­nated to re­place Adrian Piccoli as Mem­ber for Murray, fol­low­ing his re­tire­ment to take up a po­si­tion with the Univer­sity of NSW.

All Ber­ri­gan Shire com­mu­ni­ties and most Mur­rumbidgee Coun­cil com­mu­ni­ties are in the Murray elec­torate.

Res­i­dents in Jer­ilderie, which was moved into the Al­bury elec­torate be­fore the 2015 state elec­tion, will not be re­quired to vote.

Murray by-elec­tion vot­ers only need to vote for a min­i­mum of one can­di­date for their bal­lot to be el­i­gi­ble, or they may chose to num­ber 1 to 6 in or­der of pref­er­ences.
