Do I need to enrol for the Australian Marriage Law Postal Survey?

If you are currently on the electoral roll you do not need to enrol separately for the Australian Marriage Law Postal Survey. If you are unsure whether you are enrolled you can check your enrolment status. If you are not currently enrolled you can enrol online. If you are enrolled but have recently moved you can update your details online. Make sure you do this by the end of 24 August 2017.

The Australian Marriage Law Postal Survey Information Line is now available, 1800 572 113, and is open 7 days a week, from 8am to 8pm (local time). The Information Line can also confirm your enrolment for you over the phone.
