Voting while overseas
The Embassy will provide voting facilities for Federal Elections, rarely for State Elections and seldom for bi-elections.
On this page you will find information pertaining to upcoming elections in Australia, how to register as an overseas elector and what type of assistance the Embassy can provide.
You can always check upcoming elections on the Australian Electoral Commission's website: http://www.aec.gov.au/
Register to Vote for Federal Elections overseas
If you have travelled overseas with the intent to return to Australia within the next six years, you can register as an overseas elector. If you are already enrolled, you can apply up to three months before, or within three years after, you leave Australia. To do this, complete and submit a Registration as an Overseas Elector Form
