Postal voting

It is now too late to submit a new application for a postal vote. If you can't make it to a polling place on polling day, you may be eligible to vote early in person.

Mobile polling

AEC mobile polling teams visit many electors who are not able to get to a polling place. Mobile polling facilities are set up in some hospitals, nursing homes, prisons and remote areas of Australia.


If you will be overseas on election day, you can vote at an overseas voting centre, apply for a postal vote, or vote at an early voting centre before you leave Australia.

Who you vote for is your decision. Outside the polling place, candidate representatives may give you how-to-vote cards, suggesting you vote in a particular way. You do not have to follow how-to-vote cards.
