On 16 August 2017, the Minister for Finance, acting on behalf of the Treasurer, amended the direction to the Australian Statistician to confirm that Australians 18 years and older on the electoral roll as at 24 August would be included in the survey.
People who had an overseas postal address listed on the Electoral Roll were posted a letter containing a SAC to respond online or by phone. Australians temporarily overseas may have been able to complete their form before they left or after they returned.
Forms were delivered to Australian nominated addresses by 25 September 2017, including people that notified the AEC that they would be temporarily overseas.
In my view, this set the Bureau apart as a leader in implementing accessible alternatives on a national scale." Eligible Australians from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds were able to complete the survey independently through the postal service with the assistance of a trusted person (a family member or friend) or through the support of Translating and Interpreting Services (TIS).
People with an illness, injury or disability could also request a SAC to respond online or by phone.Staff received further specialist training for assisting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples including cultural awareness training, engagement with communities and training in protocols and customs.Separate to ABS pick-up locations, the ABS partnered with the Department of Human Services (DHS) to provide additional opportunities for people in remote locations to contact the ABS at one of their 600 access points across Australia.The survey packs included an addressed letter from the Electoral Commissioner, and an unaddressed letter from the Australian Statistician.A designated telephone Hotline administered by the AEC was set up to assist these electors.
