Ambassador’s Interview with Affaritaliani.it
“We do not have a real Australian community in Rome, as the city is very dispersed. However, Australians receive a warm welcome and there is a strong connection with Italians in general and with Romans in particular”. Read the rest of the interview in Italian…
Federal Election - 14 September 2013
The Prime Minister has announced that the federal election (for the House of Representatives and half the Senate) will be held in Australia on Saturday 14 September 2013.
For the 2013 election, the Australian Electoral Commission (AEC) has implemented an online postal vote application (OPVA) service, including for people overseas at election time. This is the AEC’s preferred method of receiving Postal Vote Applications (PVAs) and voters are encouraged to use the OPVA service in the first instance. Postal ballot material will be processed in Australia and sent to the applicant’s overseas mailing address.
Should voters be unable to use the OPVA, early (in-person) voting will be offered at the Australian Embassy in Rome from Monday 2 September 2013. Election arrangements, including voting times, will be published on this website closer to the election date.
Further information relating to the proposed election may be found on the Australian Electoral Commission’s website www.aec.gov.au. For queries relating to your enrolment status or eligibility please write to firstname.lastname@example.org or call +61 2 6273 8606.
