AEC Electoral Research Forum

Updated: 3 April 2013

On 19 and 20 November 2012 the AEC held an Electoral Research Forum at Old Parliament House in Canberra.

The AEC Electoral Research Forum brought together international experts, Australian researchers and staff from election management bodies to explore the issues around participation, engagement and enrolment in Australian elections. Rather than a stream of one-way formal presentations, the Forum encouraged discussions and networking between academic researchers and electoral practitioners around key themes of immediate relevance to the Australian electoral community.
