If your relative has died, their name will be removed from the electoral roll when we are:
- notified by a family member, or
- notified by the Registrar of Births, Deaths and Marriages (occurs on a monthly basis).
To request a relative's name be removed from the roll, complete the notification of a relative who has died form.
Alternatively you can contact us on 1300 655 232 with the following information:
- the deceased person’s full name, date of death and last enrolled address.
You will also need to provide your name, enrolled address, relationship to the deceased and your contact phone number.
