Taskforce advice provides assurance on 2023 referendum

Updated: 28 November 2023

The Board of the Electoral Integrity Assurance Taskforce (EIAT) has provided formal advice to the Australian Electoral Commissioner, Tom Rogers, following return of the writ for the 2023 referendum.

The Board advised Mr Rogers that “Electoral Integrity Assurance Taskforce (EIAT) agencies did not identify any foreign interference, or any other interference, that compromised the delivery of the 2023 referendum and would undermine the confidence of the Australian people in the results of the referendum.”

Mr Rogers said, “protecting and preserving the integrity of electoral processes is essential to upholding public trust in Australia’s democracy. The EIAT plays a vital role in maintaining electoral integrity and I am pleased to be able to share this advice with all Australians.”
