Australian Federal Election 2019
The 2019 Australian Federal Election will be held on Saturday 18 May 2019. If you are an eligible Australian citizen living overseas you can still participate but you need to be enrolled.
To check your enrolment details visit www.aec.gov.au. The deadline for enrolling or updating your details for the Federal Election has now passed.
Early voting at the Australian High Commission in Malta will be from Wednesday 8 May 2019 until Friday 17 May between the hours of 8:30am to 3:30pm (note: not open for voting on the weekend of 11-12 May or on 18 May). Alternatively, you can apply for a postal vote online now at www.aec.gov.au.
If voting in person, please note the following:
· For security reasons, you will need to show photo ID to be allowed access to the voting area
· Large bags will not be allowed into the voting area – handbags and similar small bags are acceptable
· Be prepared for a queue – note that we do not have public toilet facilities at the High Commission
- Be prepared with your personal and Australian details - you will first be asked to complete a “pre-poll envelope”. This envelope will require you to write personal details including your name, current residential address, and the address where you are enrolled to vote within Australia. This envelope also asks for your current Australian passport number or Australian drivers licence number – if you don’t currently have either of these, you can still vote.
If you are overseas and unable to vote, complete an overseas notification form and return it to the AEC. Being overseas is a valid reason for not voting.
Staff at the Australian High Commission in Malta cannot answer questions relating to your enrolment, or personal voter circumstances with regard to voting in this election. Please check the AEC website or contact the AEC directly on phone +61 2 6160 2600, or via their online enquiry form.
