Urgent Member Announcement - AEC Review

Friday, March 20, 2015

Dear One Nation Members, We are notifying you that the AEC is currently emailing and calling a select group of One Nation members to verify their membership status.

If you receive an email OR phone call, please respond.

The email may look like this:


Dear (Member name)

My name is Giles from the Australian Electoral Commission (AEC) in Canberra. I’m emailing you today as we are currently reviewing the registration of One Nation as a Federal political party.

One of the requirements for the registration of a Federal political party under section 123 of the Commonwealth Electoral Act 1918 is that the party must have at least 500 members who are on the Commonwealth electoral Roll.

The AEC reviews the registration of Federal political parties during the lifetime of each Parliament. To verify a party’s membership list, the AEC conducts a random sample check of the membership list provided by the party.

One Nation provided your name on its membership list and your name has been selected at random. To verify that you are a member of the party, please complete the following:

·         My name is ………………………..

·         “I am a member of One Nation” - OR - “No, I am not a member of One Nation”

Alternatively, you can contact me directly on (02) 6271 4552 to confirm whether you are a member of the party.

It is important that you respond to this email, as a certain number of members must confirm their membership of the party for the registration to continue.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any queries.

Kind Regards,

Party Registration Team
