Updated: 23 May 2016

It is now too late to enrol or update your details for the 2016 federal election.

However you can still enrol to vote in future federal, state and local government elections.

Enrolments will continue to be processed after the deadline, if you wish to confirm your enrolment for this federal election please check back in a few days.

Every time you move, you must update your address on the electoral roll or your name could be removed and you will be unable to vote. You are eligible to enrol for your new address if you have lived there for at least one month.

You will need to provide evidence of your identity. You can use your driver's licence, Australian passport number or have someone who is enrolled confirm your identity. Please note that the AEC cannot accept any other forms of identification, such as 18+ or Proof of Age cards.

If you are overseas or going overseas don't use this form to change your address. Please see information on going overseas.
