Free and fair elections are central to our democracy. It is every citizen’s responsibility to understand the electoral process and have a say.

Australia is a representative democracy in which voting is a fundamental right. We elect representatives at each of the three levels of government; State, local council and Federal.

At each election you get to decide how you would like to be represented in government, by choosing which party or candidate best represents your views.

Who administers elections?

The Victorian Electoral Commission (VEC) is responsible for administering Victorian State elections.
