Out of the total 13,131,667 votes, only 12,402,363 were classed as valid votes, with 729,304 being classed as “Informal” due either to errors on the voting card, or deliberate actions by the voter to invalidate their vote.

Many people who do not want to vote, will turn up at the voting booth and make marks on the card in such a way that their vote is not included, but so that they are not fined for not voting.

14,086,869 Australians were enrolled to vote in this election, so it appears that 955,202 did not turn up to vote for various reasons. Many of these will be genuine reasons, on holiday, sick, etc, but there will be a number who have no valid reason, and will receive a fine for not voting.
