Australian overseas voting centres

In person voting will be available at the following locations for the WA Senate election.

Postal vote

It may now be too late to apply for a postal vote online from Australia, as there may not be enough time for mail to reach you internationally. You can still apply for a postal vote directly with one of the 13 overseas posts listed above, however you should consider how long it will take for mail to reach you. The deadline for applying for a postal vote is Wednesday 2 April 2014.

You should complete your ballot paper on or before election day and post back to the AEC as soon as possible. You only have until Tuesday 22 April 2014 for your ballot papers to be received by the AEC returning officer in your division.

I am unable to vote, what should I do?

If you are unable to vote you should complete and submit an Overseas Notification form [PDF 55KB].

If you do not inform the AEC, we will write to you asking you to explain why you did not vote. If you explain you were overseas, you will not be fined.

‘People’s congress’ to test ban

‘People’s congress’ to test ban

Thu, 27 March 2014

Opposition leaders yesterday announced plans to hold a thousands-strong “people’s congress” in the capital’s Freedom Park on Sunday, despite a ban on gatherings at the site.

Cambodia National Rescue Party president Sam Rainsy and vice-president Kem Sokha, following their return from overseas trips to Australia, New Zealand and the US, said they would bring 5,000 supporters to the park.

“It is necessary to meet with citizens, and I would like to stress to the [Cambodian] People’s Party that our gathering [on Sunday] is not a demonstration,” Rainsy said. “There will be no demonstration or toppling of anything. [The CPP] cannot use [this cause] as a pretext to accuse us and not allow us to [hold public meetings].”

Rainsy added that the meetings would provide ideas for the CNRP ahead of renewed negotiations with the ruling party, which the opposition hopes will involve the most senior members of the government.

Senior CPP lawmaker Cheam Yeap, however, labelled the announcement a call for an illegal demonstration, and urged the CNRP to take its seats in parliament, saying: “His ‘congress’ is just words, but the reality is a demonstration. We already know this. So I would like [Rainsy] to release his 55 fighting cocks, and the CPP’s 68 fighting cocks will be waiting in the National Assembly.”

Rainsy added that a key CNRP demand for reform of the National Election Committee had been dismissed at negotiations, and called on the CPP to put forward its counter-proposal.

“If they do not agree, please propose another idea to guarantee independence of the NEC. What [ideas] does [the CPP] have? Come on,” he said.
