The AEC uses an electoral event portal for the administration of industrial and commercial elections and ballots.
Through this portal voters, candidates and client organisations can find and provide information relating to any industrial or commercial electoral event being conducted by the AEC. Candidates are able to create nomination forms electronically and client organisations can electronically submit data and documents. Voters can also request access to post-election reports (industrial).
The AEC requires organisations to use this portal as it provides an appropriate level of data security. If you have any questions please contact your AEC Returning Officer.
Client organisations can electronically submit member list documents and other information relating to any electoral event being conducted by the AEC.
The contact responsible for uploading documentation must be a registered portal user and must be recorded with the relevant Returning Officer as the person responsible for uploading documentation.
The AEC requires organisations to use this portal as it provides an appropriate level of data security.
The AEC’s electoral event management portal will support self-registration for all users. Each user must use a unique email address (no other portal user may use the same email address).
Voters can request replacement ballot material for both protected action ballots and industrial elections. Voters must be a registered portal user to access this service.
Registered organisation members can request and if approved, gain access to the roll of voters for industrial elections. Members must be a registered portal user to access this service.
Members are able to create nomination forms electronically (note, this will not be available for all elections). Once created, a copy of the nomination form will be sent to the user, so that they can print, sign and submit via the methods listed on the form.
Where a Registered Organisation’s rules allow, a member may also submit a completed and signed nomination form via the portal.
Members must be a registered portal user to access these services.
To use this portal, organisations must first submit an account request.
Instructions for creating an account are available. Once an account is created, you can submit all required data and documents through the portal.
Please note that each state/territory within an organisation will be required to make a separate request to the AEC.
Please ensure the Fair Work Commission or Registered Organisations Commission decision number is included when submitting data and documents to ensure the correct action is taken by the AEC.
