Enrolled to vote

Young people can vote when they turn 18. Most enrol just before a state or federal election but enrolment is open to all 16 year olds.

The maps show how many 16 and 17 year olds, and 18 and 19 year olds, are enrolled to vote in each federal electorate in South Australia according to the Australian Electoral Commission.

Using the Australian Bureau of Statistics estimated resident population, and the total number of people enrolled to vote state wide, it is possible to calculate the proportion of 16 and 17 year olds that are enrolled to vote in South Australia and nationally.
