Updated: 11 April 2019

The app includes the following features:

  • A map highlighting the early voting and election day polling places
  • Polling place accessibility information
  • Directions to a polling place
  • Results of the election as votes are counted
  • Links to useful services provided by the AEC during an election

Where can I get the app?

You can get the app in either the app Store or the Google Play app store.

Is the app free?

Yes. The app is free from both stores.

Can I vote with the app?

No, Australian law doesn’t allow for online voting in federal election at this time.

What do I need to do to set up the app?

In order to get the most from the app you need to enter your personal information as it appears on the electoral roll. This includes your full name and address you are enrolled at.  This information allows us to verify your enrolment and identify your division.

If you enter your information and it says ‘Your enrolment is not confirmed’, try :

  1. making sure the address you enter is the same as it appears on the electoral roll.
  2. making sure your first and family name you enter is the same as it appears on the electoral roll.
  3. making sure you have not entered any extra spaces in any of the fields.
  4. if you still cannot confirm your enrolment, contact the AEC.

Frequently asked questions.

I’m a silent elector, will my personal information be visible in the app?

No. If you are known to us as a silent elector you will not be able to confirm your enrolment in the app. You will still be able to estimate and see information about your division, find polling places and see results.

Why should I use the app?

The app provides all the information you need to participate in the federal election and then follow results. Candidates, polling place mapping and results information will be customised specifically for you based on your enrolment.

I was able to link myself in the app. However, my details are incorrect.

Each time you change your name or address you will need to update your details on the electoral roll. The quickest and easiest way is to change your name or change your address online. Alternatively, you can get an enrolment form from any Australia Post Outlet or we can send one to you.

Why can’t I enrol on the app?

This is the first version of the AEC app. Future updates may enable users to enrol or update their enrolment details. For now, you can enrol online.
