ENROLMENTS to vote in the Federal Election close today as Australian Electoral Commission statistics reveal the district of Ballarat has the highest enrollment in all of Victoria.
The statistics which take in all voters enrolled up until March 31 show that Ballarat has 114,362 registered voters, more than any other seat in Victoria and an average of 4.43 per cent more than the state average.
Across the electorate, 11,718 people aged 18-24 are enrolled to vote, while a further 284 people aged 16 and 17 have already enrolled for when they turn 18.
Nationwide, the youth enrollment sits at 85.8 per cent, slightly down on the peak of 88.5 per cent which came at the peak of the gay marriage plebiscite debate in September 2017.
In Victoria, 96.5 per cent of people eligible to vote are enrolled with an estimated 150,299 not on the electoral role.
An Australian Electoral Commission spokesperson said people who have recently moved house should also double check their enrollment.
"Around 50,000 Australians move house every week - if you've moved recently make sure you update your details at aec.gov.au by 8pm Thursday," the spokesperson said.
The Australian Electoral Commission said it was also reminding individuals wishing to stand as a House of Representatives or Senate candidate that they have until noon on Tuesday April 23 to lodge their nomination.
Early voting centres will open across the country on April 29, as yet a Ballarat venue for the early voting centre has not been finalised.
