Enrol to Vote

Voting Is Compulsory For Persons Over 18

If you are 18 years old and over, an Australian Citizen and have lived for at least the last month at your present address, you must be registered to vote. Voting is compulsory in Australia and you may be fined if you are not enrolled.

If You Just Turned 17

If you are 17 years old, you can provisionally enrol so you can vote at elections held after you turn 18.

If You Have Recently Changed Addresses

If you are eligible to vote and not enrolled at your current address, you need to do something about it right away.
