News News Last chance to get on electoral roll
Eligible voters not already on the electoral roll have until 8pm on Wednesday night to enrol, or miss out.

Applicants must submit their enrolment form at their nearest Australian Electoral Commission (AEC) office, or fax or email it to their local AEC divisional office.

Under new electoral laws, those not already on the roll have until 8pm on the day the election writs are issued to lodge an enrolment form.

Electoral Commissioner Ian Campbell said eligible Australians only had Wednesday to get on the electoral roll for the November 24 federal election, or miss out on casting a vote.

"If you're not on the electoral roll you must fill in an enrolment form immediately and return it to an Australian Electoral Commission office by 8pm Wednesday October 17," he said in a statement.

Enrolment forms can be downloaded from the AEC website at www.aec.gov.au and are available at any Australia Post outlet, AEC, Medicare, Centrelink and ATO office and selected Rural Transaction Centres.

Forms must be submitted at an AEC office, or faxed or emailed in, as it is now too late to post them back.

Those already on the electoral roll but who need to update address details, have until 8pm on Tuesday October 23 to fill out an enrolment form and return it to the AEC, Mr Campbell said.

People unsure about where they might be enrolled can check their electoral enrolment online at www.aec.gov.au or by ringing 13 23 26.

All Australian citizens over 18 are required by law to enrol and vote.
