If you are a Western Australian who will be living or travelling overseas on election day, Saturday 5 April 2014, you can still vote.
If you are enrolled to vote in Western Australia you can:
In person voting will be available at the following locations for the WA Senate election. More information will be available soon.
Ballot papers cannot be sent from Australia until Monday 17 March 2014. It is recommended that you apply for a postal vote before this date to allow enough time for ballot papers to reach you overseas. The deadline for applying for a postal vote is Wednesday 2 April 2014, however you should consider the time it will take for mail to reach you internationally.
You should complete your ballot paper on or before election day and post back to the AEC as soon as possible. You only have until Tuesday 22 April 2014 for your ballot papers to be received by the AEC returning officer in your division.
If you are unable to vote you should complete and submit an Overseas Notification form [PDF 55KB].
If you do not inform the AEC, we will write to you asking you to explain why you did not vote. If you explain you were overseas, you will not be fined.
