Australian Federal Election 2019 Voting Live Date: 18 May 2019 

The 2019 Australian federal election will be held on Saturday 18 May 2019 to elect members of the 46th Parliament of Australia. The election was called following the dissolution of the 45th Parliament as elected at the 2016 double dissolution federal election. All 151 seats in the House of Representatives (lower house) and 40 of the 76 seats in the Senate (upper house) will be up for election.

The second-term incumbent minority Coalition Government, led by Prime Minister Scott Morrison, is attempting to win a third three-year term against the Labor opposition, led by Opposition Leader Bill Shorten. Minor parties and independents will also contest the election, the most popular of which are the Greens and One Nation, according to nationwide opinion polls. The Greens, Centre Alliance and Katter's Australian Party are defending one House of Representatives seat each.

Australia enforces compulsory voting and uses full-preference instant-runoff voting in single-member seats for the House of Representatives and optional preferential single transferable voting in the proportionally represented Senate. The election will be administered by the Australian Electoral Commission.

The electoral system of Australia

In the Senate, members are directly elected in multi-seat constituencies by proportional representation vote. Twelve members are elected from each of the 6 states to serve six-year terms and 2 members from each of the 2 mainland territories to serve three-year terms. One-half of state membership is renewed every 3 years.
