2022 Australian federal election is upon us, and of course this means letterboxes full of promises, blames and sudden concerns for our well-being and future. Many of those will come with postal vote application forms. Be careful with those forms! If you do use them, always return them to the Electoral Commission at:
Australian Electoral Commission
Reply Paid 9867
[Your capital city]
No stamp is required if posted within Australia.
If the enclosed reply-paid envelope is addressed to anyone else, discard it and remember:
- Never send your postal application form to anyone except the Electoral Commission.
- Every unsolicited form sent by political candidates “for your convenience” is your tax money spent by them to advertise themselves and to collect your personal data.
