More than 16 million Australians are enrolled and eligible to participate in the Marriage Law Survey.
Electoral Commissioner Tom Rogers said that processing of enrolment transactions was finalised on Monday, with data provided to the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) to enable the conduct of the survey.
With nearly a million transactions received over the past two weeks it is a credit to our staff and systems to have been able to provide completed enrolment data to the ABS early this week,” Mr Rogers said.
“Over 3.3 million people visited the AEC website in the two weeks leading up to the close of rolls compared to an average fortnight of around 90,000 visitors.”
Between 8 and 24 August the AEC processed a total of 933,592 enrolment transactions. This compares to approximately 687,000 enrolment transactions during the close of rolls period at the 2016 federal election.
The majority of enrolment transactions (87 per cent) were enrolment changes or updates. Changes to an existing enrolment and re-enrolments were mostly associated with electors aged 25-39. There are over 98,000 people added to the roll, of which 65,000 are electors aged 18-24.
The ABS is conducting the Marriage Law Survey. Further information about the conduct of the survey is available on the ABS website.
