Voters will be checking their vote behind new, composite plastic voting compartments for the first time this year.
The 1,700 voting compartments cost $186 each and are expected to last for many years. According to Barbara Clifford, Returning Officer for The City, it was necessary to replace the aging wooden ones.
Here is a video interview with Barbara Clifford and images of the new voting compartments.
