As House of Representatives and half-Senate elections are usually held together, the earliest date for a simultaneous election would be Saturday, 7 August The latest possible date for a half-Senate election is Saturday 21 May , so the latest possible date for a simultaneous half-Senate and House of Representatives election is the same date.
Section 57 of the Constitution provides that both houses may be simultaneously dissolved should there be a legislative deadlock between them.
A deadlock occurs only when a three-month period has elapsed between the Senate rejecting a Bill and the House passing it a second time only for it to be rejected again.
This means that the last possible date for the dissolution of both houses of the current parliament is Friday 31 December If there is a double dissolution of the Parliament on Friday 31 December , the usual timetabling requirements apply.
The writs must be issued within ten days of the dissolution, that is, by 10 January The writs may be issued on the same day as the dissolution occurs, but as section 12 of the Constitution requires the writs for Senate elections to be issued by the State Governors, these writs may not necessarily be issued on the same day as the dissolution.
Should the writs be issued on the same day 31 December , and the shortest times apply, nominations would close on 10 January, and polling would be on Saturday 5 February Should the maximum times apply, the writs would have to be issued by 10 January and nominations would have to close by 6 February The latest possible polling date for a double dissolution election is Saturday 5 March The most common types of election have been either a simultaneous half-Senate and House of Representatives election, or a double dissolution election.
For either type of election, the Government has usually opted for a short campaign period,  notwithstanding the double dissolution campaign which went for 54 days.
The Government also usually tries to avoid having an election campaign over the Easter period, although the election was held over the Easter period.
As Easter Sunday is on 17 April in , this may be a factor if an election is considered in that year. Tables below set out the earliest and latest election dates, and possible election timetables, for these two types of elections.
Because there are limits as to when either type of election can be called, to establish the latest polling date the maximum timetable period must be used.
It should be noted that in Table 2 and Table 3 these are theoretical limits. For practical, political and financial reasons, a government is unlikely to have a maximum campaign period of 68 days or a pre-poll period of 28 days.
Dates for earliest possible election, with a minimum election period. Close of Nominations at 12 pm not less than 10 days nor more than 27 days after the issue of writs.
Declaration of Nominations at 12 pm one day after close of nominations. Pre-poll voting can begin not less than the fifth day after the declaration of nominations.
Polling Day on a Saturday not less than 23 days or more than 31 days after the close of nominations.
Return of Writs no more than days after the issue of the writs. Meeting of Parliament not later than 30 days after the date appointed for the return of the writs but may meet before that date if the writs have been returned .
