The Electoral Commission of Queensland is reminding Queenslanders to make sure they're correctly enrolled before the Queensland state election in October.
Electoral Commissioner Pat Vidgen said people often forget to update their enrolment.
"Now is a perfect time to check, enrol or update enrolment as the State general election is just around the corner with election day on Saturday 31 October," Mr Vidgen said.
"Being correctly enrolled means your voter information card or postal vote arrives at the right address and if you vote in person, you are processed quickly through the polling booth."
Mr Vidgen said the enrolment process was simple to do online and only takes a few minutes.
"The Australian Electoral Commission maintains the electoral roll for all electoral commissions across the country," he said.
"By simply going to aec.gov.au electors can select if they need to enrol for the first time, check their enrolment or update their details."
Mr Vidgen said those experiencing homelessness can be enrolled under the special enrolment option of "people with no fixed address".
"Provisional enrolment is also available for soon-to-be voters who are 16 or 17," he said.
"Enrolling and voting are compulsory in Australia, so I urge all Queenslanders to go online now and make sure they're correctly enrolled."
Mr Vidgen said preparations are well advanced to deliver a COVID-safe State general election in October with the ECQ issuing an Election Service Plan outlining activities being undertaken.
Applications for postal votes are now open and the Governor will issue the writ on October 6 which will have the dates for the close of the electoral roll and the cut-off for candidates to nominate for election.
There will be two weeks of extended early voting, and election day voting from 8am to 6pm on Saturday October 31.
