Concerns over the safety and collection of Australian voter information has sparked outrage across social media.

Over the last few days, Australians have reported receiving ‘Important Federal Election Postal Vote Information’ letters across the country.

It has been reported that inside the envelope is a campaign letter from a representative of one of the major parties. A postal vote application form is also contained in the packet, along with a reply-paid envelope.

Earlier this week, Pauline Hanson of One Nation posted the on-line warning “They will harvest your private information and bombard you with electioneering rubbish in this and future elections.”

This warning was prompted by the return addresses on the reply-paid envelopes, which were reported to be that of major party Postal Vote Processing Centres.

Issues were raised through on-line comments, and on other social media pages, that personal information contained on the completed postal vote application forms would be in the possession of someone other than the Australian Electoral Commission.

In another post today, Hanson said, “Earlier in the week I warned voters about the major parties disguising a data harvesting scheme as a Postal Vote application process. Since posting that warning, the major parties wrote a formal complaint to The Australian Government Solicitor who issued me with their own warning to take the post down.”

The Australian Government Office of the Australian Information Commissioner provides, “In certain situations Australian privacy law requires that an organisation or agency needs your consent to collect your personal information, and to use or disclose it.

Your consent is generally needed for the collection of your sensitive information or to use or disclose your personal information for a purpose other than the purpose it was collected for.”

If for some reason you are unable to attend a polling place on Saturday May 21 for the 2022 federal election, you can apply for a postal vote through the Australian Electoral Commission website –  or

Data collected by the AEC is bound by the provisions of the Privacy Act 1988, (Privacy Act) including the Australian Privacy Principles (APPs) and its AEC Privacy Policy

Forms should be returned to-


Post: Australian Electoral Commission Reply Paid 9988 [Your capital city] (No stamp is needed if posted in Australia) Fax: 02 8009 0814

In person: for your nearest office.
