More than 300,000 young people aren't enrolled to vote

AT the 2013 federal election, more than 1.2 million eligible voters were missing from the electoral roll.

Figures from the Australian Electoral Commission (AEC) at the end of last month show more than 94 per cent of eligible Australians were enrolled to vote in this poll.

But that means about 955,000 people were not enrolled to vote.

Nearly half of all 18-year-olds, and a total of nearly 350,000 young people, are not enrolled to vote.
