The Local Authorities Election Act (LAEA) only allows electors to vote if they are inside the voting station at closing time. Minister McIver has approved Ministerial Order No. MSD:103/21, enabling electors to vote in the upcoming local election if they are in line at the close of the voting station. This provision aligns with processes used for provincial elections.
