If you do not update your enrolment
If you do not update your enrolment within 21 days of becoming eligible:
- you may have to vote for your old address
- we may update your enrolment by a direct enrolment process
- your name may be removed from the roll
- you may get a fine.
We can enrol you, or update your enrolment, based on information we get from other government agencies.
This is known as direct enrolment.
We can enrol you, or update your enrolment, using information from:
- the Australian Electoral Commission
- Registrar of Births, Deaths and Marriages
- Department of Justice and Community Safety
- Department of Transport
- Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority.
If we intend to enrol you, we’ll send you a letter. If the details in the letter are correct, you don’t need to do anything. We’ll send you one more letter when we’ve processed your enrolment.
If the details in the letter are wrong, you’ll have an opportunity to let us know before we process your enrolment.
