This election the Greens only need a 3.5% swing to win Griffith. This could put the Greens in the balance of power, where we will negotiate to deliver things like dental into Medicare, urgent action on climate change, and a tax on billionaires.
Your vote this election is incredibly powerful.
This page will host all the information you need to vote: enrolling to vote, polling locations, early voting times and location, how to postal vote, and our suggested how-to-vote. It will be regularly updated as we get closer to the election and more information is released by the Australian Electoral Commission.
The election could be held any time from now until May 2022, and the government normally calls the election with just under 5 weeks' notice.
Enrolling to Vote / Updating your Enrolment
Enrolling to vote, or updating your enrolment if you've moved, is quick and easy and could make the difference this election. It takes 2 minutes and all you need is your driver's license. Rolls close only a week after the election is called, which means if you're not on the electoral roll then, you won't be able to vote. If you're not enrolled yet or think you might not be up-to-date, go to aec.gov.au/enrol now and make sure you don't miss out voting Green to make history.
Griffith has over 40 polling locations, with one usually within walking distance or a short drive from any address in the electorate. These will be released shortly after the election is officially called, and we will update this page as soon as we receive the information from the Electoral Commission.
Early Voting Times and Locations
Early voting (also known as prepolling) usually starts two weeks before polling day. In Griffith, there will likely be two polling locations – one in West End, and another closer to Coorparoo. There will also be polling locations in the Brisbane CBD where you can cast an early vote. We will update this page as soon we receive the information from the Electoral Commission.
Once the election is called, if you wish to postal vote, you will need to apply for one through the Australian Electoral Commission website. The ballot will then be sent to you and you will need to post it back before polling day. We will update this page with step-by-step information as we get closer to the election.
How to Vote Green
How your preferences go will be entirely up to you. But once the election has been called and all the candidates for Griffith and the Senate have been declared by the Electoral Commission, we will update this page with a guide to how we recommend you put your preferences.
