The AEC is asking all eligible Australian voters if they're ready for the 2022 federal election by urging them to check their enrolment.
Electoral Commissioner Tom Rogers said the new year break many Australians were having now was the perfect time to make sure you're election ready.
"The federal election will be held sometime in the next few months and it only takes a few minutes on your smartphone to ensure you're ready to vote," Mr Rogers said this week.
At least five NSW state by-elections will also be held in 2022, following the resignations of four members of the Coalition state government and a former Labor leader.
Those electorates are Bega, Holsworthy, Monaro, Strathfield and Willoughby.
It's not just about being enrolled - it has to be current.
If you've moved house recently or changed your surname, be sure to update your enrolment details.
More than 96 per cent of eligible Australians are estimated to be enrolled to vote, with a record 16,424,248 Australians enrolled to vote in the 2019 federal election.
"We have one of the highest rates of enrolment in the world and it has stayed remarkably high in between elections - it is a credit to Australians and an incredibly strong foundation for democratic participation," Mr Rogers said.
"We're always looking to boost that number though, especially with a federal election coming up in the next few months.
"Go to aec.gov.au now to enrol, update your enrolment details or just to check that you're ready to vote when the time comes."
