We want to hear from you

We want to hear your views on the future of the electoral system. We have released a consultation document and encourage you to share what matters most to you. You can find the consultation document here, including a summary, translations, and alternate formats.

Your views will help us develop recommendations on what needs to change. Next year, we will release a proposals paper to give you an opportunity to see how your input has been used and to provide further feedback. We will deliver our final recommendations to the Government at the end of 2023.

Hear from the Chair of the Independent Panel about the Review and why you should get involved.

Deborah Hart
Chair of the Independent Electoral Review Panel

How to have your say

Our consultation document outlines current electoral law and practice and includes questions to help you provide your views. You can answer as many or as few questions as you like, or just tell us your thoughts on any of the topics. You do not need to read the entire document to submit your view.

You are able to have your say on the Review in several ways:

Closing date to share your views

The closing date for all submissions is 14 November 2022. Submissions received after this time may not be able to be considered. If this closing date might prevent your participation, please let us know.

Privacy and official information

The panel intends to release the submissions that it receives. If you do not want your name or any other information that you provide in your submission to be released, please state this clearly when you send it to us and let us know why. For example, you may wish for some information to be kept confidential because it is sensitive personal information.

Your submission could also be subject to a request for information under the Official Information Act 1982. We will take your views into account when responding to requests under the Official Information Act.

The Privacy Act 2020 governs how the Independent Electoral Review collects, holds, uses, and shares personal information about you and the information you provide. You have the right to access and to correct this personal information.
