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.
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.
The way in which federal electoral advertisements must be authorised has changed.
