I live on Norfolk Island, can I enrol to vote?

If you are a resident of Norfolk Island, you can enrol to vote if you:

  • are an Australian citizen, and
  • are 18 years of age or older*, and
  • have lived for at least one month at your current address.

It is not compulsory for you to enrol, but once you have enrolled you must vote.

* You can enrol at 16 but you cannot vote until you are 18.

How do I enrol as a Norfolk Island elector?

Complete the Enrol to vote or update your details as a Norfolk Island elector form below then return it to the AEC.

To complete this form you need to nominate an electoral division where you can claim enrolment. This may be where:

  • you were last eligible to be enrolled, or
  • your next of kin is currently enrolled, or
  • you were born, or
  • you have the closest connection.

If none of the above apply, you can claim enrolment for the:

  • Division of Canberra in the Australian Capital Territory, or
  • Division of Solomon in the Northern Territory.

You may not claim enrolment for the:

  • Division of Fraser in the ACT, or
  • Division of Lingiari in the NT.

If you nominate a division in Tasmania or the Northern Territory, you are entitled to vote in their state or territory elections. There is no provision to vote at any of the other state elections or the ACT Legislative Assembly elections.

If you are unsure contact your local AEC office for further information.
