The paper lists the date of the next election where this is fixed, or, where applicable, the earliest and latest possible dates on which it may occur.
While the calling of a Commonwealth election is partly a matter of political judgement and timing, a constitutional and legislative framework governs the electoral timetable and process.
The Australian Constitution requires periodic elections for both Houses of Parliament, with separate provisions reflecting the different constitutional role of each House.
The maximum term of the House of Representatives is set by section 28 of the Constitution, which states:. Every House of Representatives shall continue for three years from the first meeting of the House, and no longer, but may be sooner dissolved by the Governor-General.
The Constitution  and the Commonwealth Electoral Act  CEA provide the following timetabling provisions for elections note that the specific dates for the relevant election are set out in the writ : .
A House of Representatives election can be requested at any time but, if the Government has control of the House and is able to proceed with its legislative program, the Governor-General is highly unlikely to agree to such a request within the first year of a new parliament.
The latest possible date of the next election is within 68 days from the expiry of the House. However, an election may be held at any time before that date.
Generally, elections are called well before there is a constitutional or legal necessity. There has been only one instance of an election being held after a parliament expired through effluxion of time.
This occurred in The length of the 45th Parliament was determined largely by the requirement to hold a half-Senate election, as discussed in the next section.
Unlike the House of Representatives, the Senate is a continuing body. Section 13 of the Constitution requires that an election be held within one year before the places of retiring senators become vacant.
The terms of senators for the territories coincide with those of the House of Representatives. There is no constitutional requirement that elections for the House of Representatives and state senators be held simultaneously.
They are generally held together, primarily to avoid the duplication of costs in holding separate elections and because it is felt that voters would not look kindly upon a government that called separate elections.
The last time a half-Senate only election was held was in If the elections for the House of Representatives and half the Senate are to be held simultaneously, the date must conform with the constitutional provisions relating to the terms of Senators and the period during which the Senate election must be held.
The terms of senators elected in for six year terms will expire on 30 June Therefore, in theory, the next half-Senate election must be held between 1 July and 30 June So the earliest possible date for such an election is Saturday 7 August Similarly, practicalities of timings between polling day and the swearing in of new Senators has traditionally precluded June from being available for half-Senate elections.
This date allows for the maximum day period after the issue of the writs, which would happen on Tuesday 22 March, to their return by 30 June so that the elected Senators could take their seats on 1 July Note, however, that the latest date is not nearly as fixed as the earliest.
