Declaration votes issued by state
This table provides the number of declaration votes by vote type issued to voters by the AEC for each state and territory.
This table is sortable by selecting on column headers.
- A declaration vote is when a voter cannot be marked off the electoral roll at the time of voting. This can include people voting outside of their division, via post or where the voter's name cannot be found on the certified list.
- An absent vote is a vote cast at a polling place outside of a voter's electoral division, but still within their state or territory.
- Provisional votes are votes cast at a polling place where the elector's name cannot be found on the roll, the elector's name has already been marked off the roll or votes cast by a silent elector.
- These results are final.
