Enrolment closes tonight! Enrol or update your details now

Updated: 18 September 2023

The Australian Electoral Commission is reminding all Australian citizens 18 years and older that today is the last day to enrol to vote or check or update their details for the 2023 referendum.

  • Enrolment deadline: 8pm (local time) tonight

Australian Electoral Commissioner Tom Rogers said it is the last chance to be ready to vote.

“Don’t delay – if you do, you could be one of the very few eligible people out there not ready to vote in the first referendum in nearly a quarter of a century,” Mr Rogers said.

“It’ll be the best democratic base for participation Australia has ever had and we want all eligible Australians to be a part of that.”

“Since the announcement of the 2023 referendum, there have been over 240,000 enrolment transactions submitted – approximately 15,000 a day.”

There is currently more than 17.5 million Australians on the electoral roll with at least 97.5% of all eligible Australians enrolled to vote.
