With a re-emergence of COVID-19 cases across the Illawarra and Shoalhaven this week, the NSW Electoral Commission has a range of COVID safety measures in place for tomorrow's local government elections.
Cameron Whalan from the NSW Electoral Commission said there's a number of requirements voters must follow.
"That includes mandatory mask wearing, bringing your own pen from home or using one of the single use pens provided.
"Physical distancing when you're in polling places and lines to get in there as well and also checking in and out upon arrival and departure," he said.
Whalan said pre-polling will continue across Wollongong, Shellharbour and Kiama today.
"It's not too late to pre-poll.
"This morning you can look your address up (HERE).
"You'll find all of your closest pre-polling places but you can also plan ahead for the day following, for election day and find your closest polling locations too," he said.
Fines will apply for those who fail to vote.
Whalan said there are options if you can't physically get to a polling place.
"If you're outside of your local government area or council ward you might be eligible for i-Vote which is online or telephone voting but I would say that if you're unable to make it you will be issued with a failure to vote fine which is $55 but you will also have recourse, so you'll be given the chance to provide sufficient reason," Whalan said.
