To exercise their voting rights, Australians must be registered in the electoral rolls. It is therefore imperative that voters verify and update their details on the Australian Electoral Commission (AEC) website to ensure eligibility.

It is important to note that the Australian Embassy in Athens will remain closed on referendum day, October 14, 2023.

In order to participate in the voting process, citizens will have to show proof of identity at the Embassy.

Therefore, those residing or traveling in Greece are encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity and ensure that their voice is heard in this referendum.
