Victoria Election 2022 Dan Andrews, Matthew Guy: Voters forced to write their own ballot papers


Some Victorians had to hand-write votes on blank ballot papers as a number of centres ran out on election day.

The Victorian Electoral Commission confirmed the ballot paper shortage on Twitter on Saturday night.

‘We are aware of a limited number of voting centres running out of printed district ballot papers earlier today. This may have been because of people voting outside of their district,’ the commission wrote.

‘No voters were turned away or missed out on voting due to this.

‘In the interim voters were provided with blank ballots, with candidates’ names handwritten on the ballot. This is an acceptable approach in this situation.’
