Key info

  • If you fail to vote in a Tasmanian election you will get a 'notice of failure to vote' letter and fine from the Tasmanian Electoral Commission (TEC). The cost of the fine will be included with the notice.
  • You can pay your fine online, in person or over the phone. If left unpaid the fine will become an infringement notice.
  • If you did vote, you can fill out the response form on the letter and send it back, voting records can be rechecked.
  • If you did not vote, but you believe you have a valid reason for not voting, contact the TEC on 1800 801 701.
