In Australia the most powerful legal identity for an adult person in society would be viewed as that of elector which is created when one does voluntarily give their name and residential address and birthdate and sex or gender to the Australian Electoral Commission ( AEC ) so those details can then be placed upon various electoral rolls . If one does accordingly submit personal information in that manner they will gain the status of elector with the legal right of either becoming an election candidate themselves or nominating others to become such both indirectly through a political party or directly if approached by another elector that is seeking independent candidacy .
However , most electors will eventually and invariably become voters during their first election event and thereby permanently lose all initial elector status . The only possible way an initial elector could maintain their original elector status and hence their sovereign individual legal power would be nominating another non party elector for parliamentary candidacy . If the nominee does retain their own elector status during that parliamentary term of office the elector nominator will likewise retain their elector status .
All those who have obtained parliamentary office so far in Australia did not possess the ability or fortitude to retain their own elector status and so the personal trust of all but knowledgeable original Australian electors has been betrayed . With the establishment of computer technology the electronic electoral roll doth reveal the situation by displaying only the full name and residential address and electoral divisions of the eventual voters and not the other individual personal electoral details of birthdate and sex or gender .
