Paper enrolment forms are also available at any Australia Post or Australian Electoral Commission office.

Anyone on the State electoral roll for their current address and non-resident property owners are automatically enrolled for these elections.
There are also additional enrolment categories for occupiers, company nominees and non-Australian citizens who pay rates. People in these categories should contact their local council for more information.
