Enrol or update your details!

It is compulsory by law for all eligible Australian citizens to enrol and vote in federal elections, by-elections and referendums, and it can take weeks for AEC to process your enrolment details, so make sure you’re enrolled at the right address now!

If you are temporarily displaced from your enrolled address due to flood or other natural disasters, you may still remain enrolled at that address. If you would like to add a temporary postal address to your enrolment record, please use the online enrolment form at the link below to update your contact details. Alternatively, you can contact the AEC directly on 13 23 26. Remember to update the temporary postal address once your circumstances have changed.

Enrolment information and forms are also available for people who are homeless or have no fixed residential address.

Head over to or pop in to my office for more information or a paper form.
