According to the AEC there were 811,000 missing Australian electors at the June 30 with 279,000 of them young voters aged 18-24.

A survey form will be sent by post to every eligible Australian. It will be sent to the address on the Commonwealth Electoral Roll. Forms will be mailed over a two week period commencing 12 September.

Eligible Australians who will not be at their enrolled address during the mail out period should arrange to have their mail forwarded or can contact the Australian Marriage Law Survey Information Line to arrange for a survey form to be dispatched to their nominated address.
