Registering as an overseas voter
If you are already enrolled to vote and are living overseas, you may register as a postal voter. As a registered postal voter, you will receive a postal vote in the mail after the announcement of a federal election.
If you are unable to vote
You may complete and submit an overseas notification form if you are unable to vote in an election while overseas. The form may be completed at any time and provides you with an option to be removed from the electoral roll while you are overseas.
