If you bring the app or card with you to the polling booth, the polling official will use the unique information to quickly find you on the electoral roll and mark off your name. 

Where can I get the app?

The EasyVote Card App is available in the Google Play and iTunes app stores:

ApPStore    GooglePlay 

How much does the app cost?

It is available free of charge.

What is the difference between the app and the card?

The card contains your personal information and a list of your nearest polling booths on the back.

The app contains your personal information and nearest polling booths, but also includes mapping of all polling booths, waiting times, information about candidates, and instructions on how to vote.

All enrolled South Australians are sent a printed EasyVote Card by default. However, if you download the app prior to 23 February 2018 you will not be sent an printed EasyVote Card in the mail. This helps reduce environmental impact, cost, and provides you with additional information to help you vote.

Bring either one with you when you vote! 

When you go into a polling booth, you will be asked for your name and address. 

You don’t have to show your EasyVote Card or App, but if you do, you will be marked off the roll quicker, get to the voting compartment quicker.

How do I set up the app?

In order to fully activate the app you need to enter your personal information as it appears on the electoral roll. This includes your full name, date of birth and address.

If you enter your information and it says ‘We couldn’t find a match’, try the following troubleshooting tips:

  1. Make sure you only enter your street name in the address field. Do not enter your street number.

  2. Make sure the name you enter is the same as it appears on the electoral roll. You may need to include your middle name, for example, if you are enrolled using a middle name.

  3. Make sure you have not entered any extra spaces in any of the fields.

  4. Some users have reported difficulty using the ‘date of birth’ field on Android devices (such as Samsung smartphones). The date of birth calendar is the default Android interface. Make sure you click on the year at the top to select your year of birth.
