2018 Batman by-election
A by-election for the federal electoral Division of Batman in Victoria will be held on Saturday 17 March 2018.
You can check if you are enrolled in the Division of Batman, enrol or update your enrolment details at www.aec.gov.au/enrol. The deadline to enrol is 8pm AEDT Wednesday 14 February 2018.
In-person voting will not be available outside of Australia for this by-election. If you will be overseas on by-election day, you can apply for a postal vote or you can vote in person in Australia before you go.
You can apply for a postal vote by completing a ‘Postal Vote Application’ on the AEC website. You should ensure that you apply for a postal vote as soon as possible to allow enough time for the ballot papers to reach you overseas before by-election day.
