The ACT electoral roll is maintained by the Australian Electoral Commission (AEC) and enrolment provisions for the ACT are essentially the same as for Commonwealth elections.

Change of Address and Electoral Enrolment

The electoral roll for the 20 October 2012 ACT election closed on 21 September 2012. If you were not on the roll on that date, you will not be able to vote at the election.

If you were on the roll on 21 September for a previous address, and you are 18 or over, you will still be able to vote for that address. In fact, if you are enrolled, voting is compulsory. If you have moved address and not updated your enrolment, you should still update your enrolment in readiness for the federal election due to be held within the next year or so. 

To enrol to vote or to change any of your electoral details on the electoral roll, you need to complete an enrolment form.
