Q. How many eligible Australians are not yet registered to vote?
A: 657,839, according to the Australian Electoral Commission.

That’s easily enough to determine the outcome of this election.

If you’re 18 before the election, here’s your chance to change the world… well, our part of it at least.

It’s easy to register online at aec.gov.au/enrol.

But be quick; once the election has been called, you only have eight days to register.
