Enrolment and voting information

In-person voting will not be available outside of Australia for this by-election. If you will be overseas on by-election day, you can apply for a postal vote or vote in person in Australia before you go.

You can apply for a postal vote by completing a 'Postal Vote Application' on the Australian Electoral Commission (AEC) website. Ensure that you apply for a postal vote as soon as possible to allow enough time for the ballot papers to reach you overseas before by-election day.
