PEOPLE wishing to vote in the State Election must register their details with the Victorian Electoral Commission by 8pm tonight.
The VEC is reminding all residents over 18 that voting is compulsory and that failure to do so incurs fines.
For those unable to vote on November 24, early voting centres will open next Monday and close on November 23.
It is anticipated that up to half of all votes cast this election could be made early.
In Ballarat an early voting centre will operate for the Wendouree electorate at 607 La Trobe Street Redan and for the Buninyong electorate at 1/401 Lal Lal Street Canadian.
Those residents who fall in the Ripon electorate - which takes in Lucas - and wish to vote early, can vote absentee at one of the two Ballarat sites or at the Stawell site at 8-12 Scotland Place Stawell.
Applications for postal votes close at 6pm on November 21.
