Special Electoral Enrolment Options – Silent Elector

Special enrolment options available to electors who may be experiencing domestic violence.

Electors can apply to register as a silent elector if they believe having their address on the electoral roll would put them or their family’s safety at risk. If you are granted silent elector status only your name is shown on the publicly available electoral roll.

How do I apply?

If you are already enrolled, you can register as a silent elector by using the form attached.

You will need to:

  • read page one of the form to check you qualify for silent elector status,
  • complete the form,
  • complete the statutory declaration and explain what you consider the risk to be and why your personal safety (or that of your family) is at risk.

If you are not enrolled, you can enrol online or complete a the PDF version of the enrolment form (also attached) and then return it to the AEC with your silent elector form.

A separate silent elector form is required for each person requesting silent elector status. You can provide one statutory declaration as long as it includes the names of all the people applying.

Silent elector status is not granted automatically. Each application is considered by the Divisional Returning Officer and a decision is made based on whether it meets the legal conditions for silent elector status.

If you would like further information, please don’t hesitate to contact a member of our team on the contact details below.
