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.
The AEC website is undergoing maintenance from 2pm-3pm AEDT on Sunday 25 March and between 6pm AEDT on Sunday 25 March and 6am AEDT on Monday 26 March.
