All Australians over the age of 18 have the right to vote and are legally required to do so by law. If you’re looking to enrol and have a disability, or do not know how, we’ve got some resources below to help provide some guidance on where to get started.
To enrol for the first time, get back on the roll or to update your details, click here and follow the prompts. You will need either:
- Your driver’s licence
- Australian passport number, or
- Someone who is enrolled to confirm your identity
Easy to read guides or translated versions of these guides are available on The Australian Electroral Commission’s (AEC) website if you’re looking for information on how to enrol and how to vote.
The AEC website also features the ReadSpeaker application, which reads the content aloud. You can save this content as an MP3 file if you prefer.
For people with hearing difficulties or people who are D/deaf, you are able to contact the National Relay Service (NRS) to access this information. This article on the NRS can provide you with an overview of who the NRS are and what they do if you are unsure.
