Removal Of Elector’s Name From Roll :
(Incapable of understanding the nature and significance of enrolment and voting)
To remove a person’s name from the roll on the grounds of being incapable of understanding the nature and significance of enrolment and voting:
** The form overleaf must be completed by someone who is currently on the Electoral Roll; and
** A medical practitioner must complete the certificate below.

The completed form may be returned by :
** Post (no stamp needed) The Electoral Commissioner
Victorian Electoral Commission
Reply Paid 66506
Melbourne VIC 8001

** Fax (both sides) +61 3 9620 1568

** Email (scan both sides)

When the objection process described overleaf is complete, the elector will be removed from the electoral roll for Federal, State and local council elections.

Objection to enrolment :
(under section 114 of Commonwealth Electoral Act 1918)
If you believe that a person whose name appears on an electoral roll is no longer capable of voting, then you may use this form to advise the Australian Electoral Commission (AEC).
To lodge an objection on this basis you must be enrolled to vote, but not necessarily in the same electoral division as the person named in your objection.
Objecting to a person’s enrolment for any other reason requires a different form (ER005Aw_0804) available from AEC offices.

Objection reason :
The reason for making this objection is that you believe the person:
** is of unsound mind and incapable of understanding the nature and significance of enrolment and voting
(must be accompanied by a certificate from a registered medical practitioner – see other side.)

The objection process :
When your objection is received the AEC will write to the person you have named notifying them of your objection and stating the reason you have given. The person will be advised of your name and address. The person will be allowed 20 days to provide information to confirm their right to remain enrolled. If they are unable to do so, or if they do not respond within 20 days, their name will be removed from the electoral roll. If your objection is considered to be frivolous or vexatious it will be dismissed without giving notice to the person you have named.

Lodging your objection :
When both sides of this form have been completed, lodge it as per the instructions on the other side.
