In Queensland, voting in a state election is governed by the Electoral Act 1992 (Qld), whereas voting in a local council election is governed by the Local Government Electoral Act 2011 (Qld).
How much do you get fined for not voting in Qld? The fine applicable for not voting in a state or local election is $143.
However, if you pay the fine prior to the due date indicated, it will reduce the penalty to $71.50 (one-half of the penalty unit). Instead, you may seek to provide a valid and sufficient reason for not voting or provide details of voting if you actually did so.
If the fine is not paid, it may be referred to the State Penalties Enforcement Registry where additional charges may apply (which is usually a further ‘registration fee’ of $75.60).

Please note the option to pay online expires after the fine’s due date.
