What's happening

Can we count you in?

The Australian Electoral Commission only conducts federal electoral events. State, territory and local elections are conducted by the relevant electoral management body.

Charities and electoral expenditure and disclosure

Recent changes to the Electoral Act may impact organisations, such as some charities, that incur expenditure to influence voters in a federal election.

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.

Political party text messages

The Commonwealth Electoral Act 1918 does not restrict the amount of electoral advertising by political parties or the channels in which they communicate.

When nominating for federal elections candidates can complete a qualification checklist to demonstrate their eligibility under s44 of the Constitution.
