IF you want to vote in the upcoming federal election on May 18, now is the time to double-check your details.

The rolls close at 8pm this Thursday, with an estimated 76,914 West Australians not enrolled.

Electoral commissioner Tom Rogers said people not enrolled by the cut-off would be ineligible for the 2019 poll.

β€œA record 96.5 per cent of eligible Australians are currently enrolled, which is an extraordinary achievement,” he said.

β€œAt the same time, there are still people who remain unenrolled who need to take action.”

Anyone who has moved house or changed their name needs to update their details and 17 year olds turning 18 on or before May 18 also need to check they are registered.

To update or check details, visit the Australian Electoral Commission website at aec.gov.au or call 13 23 26.

For those unable to go online, a paper enrolment form is available at any Australian Electoral Commission (AEC) office or Australia Post.

However, the forms must be with the AEC by the close of the rolls deadline.
