Candidates or political parties may have sent you a postal vote application which contains their branding, logo or other materials. Candidates and political parties are allowed to send postal vote applications to households.
If you decide to use the form sent to you, the party or candidate must forward your form to the AEC for processing. The AEC has no control over what political parties do with the personal information you provide on your application form before they forward it to us.
You can also return the paper form directly to the AEC instead of the party or candidate:
- Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Fax 02 8009 0814.
- Or post:

You don’t have to use the postal vote application sent to you by a political party or candidate. If you prefer, you can directly apply for a postal vote through the AEC.
