The latest report of the survey on service voter registration was conducted by Defence Analytical Services and Advice (DASA) in November 2008 and a copy of the survey is available in the Library of the House. The figures from the DASA Service voters survey for 2009 are currently being compiled.

The Armed Forces are currently running an additional information campaign encouraging all service personnel to ensure they have registered to vote. We are targeting units that, in particular are scheduled to deploy to Afghanistan as well as those that will be in Afghanistan during an election period.
