On Saturday, 7th March, NSW Governor David Hurley issued writs for the NSW State Election.
This means that candidate nominations have opened and will close on ‘Nomination Day’.
Exactly when is ‘Nomination Day’ appears to be a closely guarded secret but a guess is Friday, 13th March.
This also means that at 6pm on Saturday officially the ‘rolls have closed’ but I’m told that being NSW you can still enrol and vote until 6pm on polling day.
For official election details, see:
And this website is the same.
