There are 26,460 more ACT residents enrolled to vote at this year’s ACT Legislative Assembly election than there were for the last election in 2012.
The electoral rolls for the October 15 election closed on Friday.
“There are 283,162 electors on the roll for this election – an increase of 26,460 on the 256,702 who were enrolled for the last election in 2012,” the ACT Electoral Commissioner, Mr Phillip Green, said today, updating an earlier figure he had quoted that incorrectly included 16 and 17 year olds who were provisionally enrolled but who would not be 18 years old on or before polling day, and therefore who are not eligible to vote at the 2016 election.
“In 2016, 145,145 females, 137,992 males and 25 electors with unspecified gender will be eligible to vote,” Mr Green said.
Here is the breakdown of enrolments for the five ACT electorates:
