Australian Marriage Law Postal Survey – silent electors

Updated: 18 October 2017

If you are a silent elector or a defence force member registered with the AEC as deployed overseas you will have been sent your survey forms by the AEC rather than the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS).

The AEC has undertaken this task on behalf of the ABS to uphold the privacy of silent electors. Survey forms distributed by the AEC will include a reply paid envelope that will enable the ABS to receive your survey response.

Silent electors can ring the AEC during business hours on +61 2 6271 4441 to request a replacement survey form up until the deadline at 6pm (local time) on Friday 20 October 2017. The silent elector hotline will close following the cut off for requesting replacement survey forms.

All other enquiries regarding the survey must be directed to the ABS contact page.
