What's happening

The Australian Electoral Commission only conducts federal electoral events. State, territory and local elections are conducted by the relevant local electoral management body.

The AEC does not have the authority to conduct eligibility checks. Candidate eligibility is addressed in Section 44 of the Constitution. The Constitution is administered by the Attorney-General’s Department.

It is also worth noting that there is no data source available that would enable comprehensive candidate eligibility inquiries to be made in a timely and accurate way.

Senate ballot box

Since the 2016 federal election the AEC has conducted a number of Senate special counts following decisions by the High Court regarding the eligibility of candidates.

Statements of results for special Senate counts are updated as available.
