With the federal government announcing that the upcoming election will be held on the 18th of May, many young people across Australia will be voting for the first time. Because of this, many young Australians are scrambling to figure out whether they are enrolled to vote.
Currently, over 580,000 Australians are missing from the Australian Electoral role with the majority of these being people between the age of 18-24. Other people missing from the role include people living in rural or remote areas.
The cutoff date for enrolment into the electoral role is the 18th of April.
