Aboriginals had the right to vote right back in colonial times. When the constitutions of Victoria, New South Wales, Tasmania and South Australia were framed in the 1850s they gave voting rights to all male British subjects over the age of 21, and this included Aboriginal men. In 1895 when the South Australia gave women the right to vote and hold a seat in Parliament, that right was granted to Aboriginal women as well. Only in Queensland and Western Australia were Aborigines not permitted to vote. Aboriginal men and women also voted for the first Commonwealth Parliament in 1901.
Voting first began in 1901 which coincided with Federation. That makes it as of 2011, 110 years old.
woman's sufferage towards democratic equality in Australia for voting rights was split up by states. A basic time line is below: * 1894 - South Australia allows women to vote in State Elections (first voted in 1895) * 1899 - Western Australia follows SA example (First voted in 1901) * 1902 - NSW allows women to vote & the commonwealth franchise act is passed allowing women the right to vote in the federal elections * 1903 - Women vote in their first federal election (Dec, 16th, 1903) * 1905 - QLD allows women to vote * 1908 - Victoria allows women to vote. Keep note that back then the term "womens rights" did not include aboriginal women.They were given the right to vote in 1894.
