Failure to Vote at October 2020 Council Elections

The Victorian Electoral Commission (VEC) will soon be sending out “Apparent Failure to Vote” notices to those who were required to vote in the October 2020 Council elections but appeared not to. This notice will give you the chance to explain why you did not vote in the Greater Dandenong elections. You can read more about this enforcement process on the VEC’s website.

Note that Council plays no role in this process and cannot help you with any fines incurred through the VEC.
