Snowy Valleys council area residents will head to the polls on July 4 for the Eden-Monaro federal byelection.
Labor, the incumbent party in the electorate, has nominated Former Bega Valley mayor Kristy McBain as its candidate.
The Liberal Party has nominated Small businesswoman and farmer, Dr Fiona Kotvojs.
The Liberal Democrats nominated Dean McCrae, the Science party has nominated James Jansson and Andrew Thaler will run as an independent.
The Greens and the Nationals have both indicated an interest in contesting the seat but have yet to nominate candidates.
House of Representatives Speaker Tony Smith on Monday announced the date for the battle to replace retiring MP Mike Kelly.
The election campaign and voting are set be unlike any other in modern memory with the Australian Electoral Commission taking measures to prevent the spread of coronavirus.
"In normal circumstances, the AEC advises that it is preferable not to have elections during school holidays," Mr Smith said.
"With the current challenges created by the coronavirus pandemic, the advice is different on this occasion.
Mr Smith said the AEC had completed "extensive consultations" with the NSW Department of Education because a significant number of polling places are located at schools.
"As a result, the AEC has advised me that it is preferable to have a polling date where students and staff do not return to school on the very next Monday," Mr Smith said.
"This will then enable a thorough sanitizing clean after the completion of voting and counting at polling booths at NSW schools."
The AEC will provide guidance for voters regarding social distancing and hygiene at polling places.
Hand sanitiser will be available and voting screens will be regularly cleaned by AEC staff.
Enrolling to vote or changing enrolment details will close on June 4 and nomination for candidates will close on June 9.
The AEC has advised Eden-Monaro voters who have lost their homes to the Dunns Road bushfire to update their enrollment if they have a new permanent address prior to the close of rolls.
Enrolment information and forms are also available for people who are homeless or have no fixed residential address.
