Key dates ahead of the 2022 federal election
We don’t know exactly when the federal election will be yet, but it is most likely to be sometime in May.
In the meantime, it’s important that you update your details on the electoral roll if you haven’t done so since the last federal election in May 2019.
You can do that at the Australian Electoral Commission website.
If you don’t do it within seven days of the election being officially called, you won’t be able to vote.
We’ll add more dates to this section if the election is officially called in the coming days.
