There was a big error in the TV adds last night stating that enrolling for new voters closes at 8 pm tomorrow. In actual fact it is at 8 pm on Wednesday.

This apparently was a genuine stuff up. Someone overlooked that tuesday was a holiday in Tasmania. It was not Howard being sneaky.

but it's not a tasmanian state election but a federal election and as such there was no federal holiday to factor into the equation

but then again are senate elections technically state elections? :hmm:

tricky!

Actually the day affected is Monday 22 Oct. (next week, not today) That specific Monday is not a holiday in Tasmania generally. It is a holiday only on Flinders Island for the Flinders Island show. (Tasmania has many of these quaint little local holidays that only apply in part of the state, although it's not as bad as it used to be.)

If you're not on the roll and have never been, you have until 8pm Wednesday 17th.
If you need to update your address you have until 8pm Tues Oct 23rd.
