Election timetable

Note that the timeline has changed compared to our original announcement. This is because La Trobe University has decided to recognise Thursday 22nd September as a holiday, and therefore that day does not count as an “academic day” within the meaning of the Electoral Regulations.

All times are the time in Melbourne, Australia.
