What's happening

The federal election is scheduled to be held in the first half of 2022. Voting options will include in-person and postal services with safety measures in place.

A lot will depend on what’s happening with COVID when the election is on and we're in regular consultation with health authorities to inform our services. We’ll be progressively providing answers to your questions as safety measures are confirmed.

Changes to the Commonwealth Electoral Act 1918 have been passed by Parliament, including amendments relating to party registration, the scrutiny of Senate elections and annual disclosure requirements. Further information regarding these and proposed further changes to electoral laws will be made available progressively.

Thousands of temporary paid roles will be available at the next federal election. It’s easy to apply and training provided. Can we count you in?
