The AEC is required to provide electoral roll information to a number of people and organisations listed in the Electoral Act and Electoral and Referendum Regulations 2016. Roll information is also made publically available via terminals in AEC offices. Limited roll information is provided for companies listed in the regulations who provide identity verification services.
The AEC employs around 80,000 Australians to deliver a federal election. There are election roles available before, on or after election day.
People from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds are encouraged to apply.
Changes have been made to federal election funding and disclosure laws as a result of the Electoral Legislation Amendment (Electoral Funding and Disclosure Reform) Act 2018. Some changes came into effect on 1 December 2018 and others on 1 January 2019.
