A total of six candidates ran in the Bradfield electorate at the 2007 federal election.


Ms Harrison said that “the secure printing of ballot papers would now begin and early voting would

commence on Monday, 16 November 2009 for those electors with a valid and sufficient reason for

being unable to vote on election day.”


Election day for the Bradfield House of Representatives by-election is Saturday, 5 December 2009.

Voting is compulsory for Australian citizens aged 18 years and over and enrolled in the electorate of

Bradfield.


The by-election will be conducted using the same electoral boundaries for Bradfield as used at the

2007 federal election.
