^ Direct Enrol and Direct Update are enrolment transactions processed generated by sections 103A & B of the Commonwealth Electoral Act 1918. These are made up of enrolment transactions processed at the end of the notification period, as well as direct enrolment transactions processed as a result of a returned direct enrolment or update letter of intent within this period. Enrolment transactions may occur outside of the source state as a result of advice from the elector provided within the notification period.

* Other includes predominantly enrolment forms obtained from Transport Authorities, Department of Human Services, Australia Post, AEC Divisional offices, and Citizenship Ceremonies.

> Direct Enrol and Direct Update Other includes enrolments which were prompted by a direct enrol or direct update letter of intent, but which resulted in a claim for enrolment by the elector (section 98 of the Commonwealth Electoral Act 1918).

Enrolment from a Federal perspective

In other words, where an elector doesn't have an existing Federal enrolment entitlement then the Direct Enrol and Update process will identify the enrolment as a New Enrolment or a Reenrolment.
