Electoral Commission of Queensland

Failure to Vote

Infringement Notice

Infringement Notices were sent to people who appear not to have voted at the 2017 State election.

Recipients were given the opportunity to:

  • provide a valid and sufficient reason for not voting;
  • tell us they did vote and provide details; or
  • pay a fine of $126.15 for not voting.

The time to respond has now passed and outstanding cases have been referred to the State Penalties Enforcement Registry (SPER) for further action.

For more information please call ECQ on 1300 881 665 (Mon-Fri, 9am-5pm). Alternatively you can email ecq@ecq.qld.gov.au.
