The Ballot Box is an important icon for local government democracy. In most cases it is no longer in use, supplanted by postal voting.

Physical description

Four wooden ballot boxes from the former Shire of Avon. All are locakable and have a small slit at the top for insertion of votes.

Three are painted green, two are similar and the third is different. One is varnished wood with dove-tailed corners.
