** the deceased person’s full name,

Moving Overseas

If you are moving overseas indefinitely/permanently you can request to have your name removed from the electoral roll. You will need to complete the overseas notification form.

Once the form has been submitted you will be sent a letter from the Australian Electoral Commission confirming your request to be unenrolled.

Elector Of Unsound Mind

If your relative is of unsound mind and incapable of understanding the nature and significance of enrolment and voting then you will need to complete a form to remove their name from the electoral roll.

The medical certificate on the form must be completed and signed by a registered medical practitioner.

Fine for Not Voting

If you did not vote at a State election, or by-election, you must contact the Electoral Commission SA with your reason for not voting.
Either :
** complete the email form on the contact us page and include your reason for not voting, or
** call us on 1300 655 232.

If you provide a valid and sufficient reason for not voting you will be excused and avoid a fine. If you do not contact the Electoral Commission SA you will be sent a notice requesting a reason for not voting.

State Electoral Boundaries

In South Australia there is one Legislative Council district (the entire state) and forty-seven House of Assembly districts.

Following each state election, a boundary review is conducted by the Electoral Districts Boundaries Commission. In 2016, the boundary review led to changes to the boundaries of 46 of the 47 House of Assembly electoral districts.

These changes mean that around 400,000 or one third of all South Australian electors have moved district, and a further 81,000 electors have not moved but find themselves living in a different electoral district as a result of name changes to 7 districts.

These changes will officially take effect on polling day, 17 March 2018. Until that date, your current Member of Parliament continues to be your representative in the House of Assembly.
