Check to enrol or just enrol for the May 2022 Australian federal election

The federal election has been announced and all Australians must act now to ensure they are correctly enrolled to vote.

Australian election

The Electoral Commissioner, Mr Tom Rogers, said all Australian citizens aged 18 years and over have the right, and are required by law, to enrol and vote in the upcoming federal election.

“Voting gives you a voice on the issues you care about. If you are not enrolled, you can’t vote in the 2022 federal election” Mr Rogers said.

Enrolling to vote

  • The enrolment deadline is 8pm on Monday 18 April 2022.

Mr Rogers urged all Australians who are unsure if their enrolment is up to date to check online now.

“If you’re not enrolled, if you’ve just turned 18, or become an Australian citizen, or if you’ve changed address recently, go to to enrol or update your details online.”

Australians unable to go online can pick up a paper enrolment form at any AEC office. Correctly completed applications must be returned to the AEC before the close of rolls deadline.

You can call the telephone interpreter service on 1300 720 153 for assistance and information in your preferred language about how to enrol and update your details online.

Voting services

Australians will be able to cast their vote either in-person or if eligible, via post at this federal election.

In the coming weeks, a comprehensive AEC communications campaign – involving TV, radio, newspaper and digital advertising, and direct mail – will inform Australians about how to take part in the election, and the options available to them.
