Annual General Meeting 2016

The next Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the Voluntary Euthanasia Party will take place at 1pm on Saturday 29 October 2016 at the Dougherty Centre in Chatswood. All positions become vacant at the AGM, and we will be voting in our new Executive Committee for the coming year. We encourage members to attend and stand for positions.

All VEP members will be sent a formal invitation to the AGM, so you can update your details here to ensure they're correct in our membership database.

The Federal VEP AGM will be followed by the New South Wales branch AGM, which will take place at the same venue. NSW members are welcome to attend and participate in both.

2016 Election Campaign

The Voluntary Euthanasia Party (VEP) ran a strong Federal Election campaign in 2016 to continue pushing the national debate towards the legalisation of voluntary assisted dying. We nominated 7 candidates across the 3 states that were identified as most strategically important.

An impressive range of VEP candidates contested the Senate races in New South Wales, Victoria and South Australia, as well as the lower house seat of Menzies. You can see the full biographies of each candidate and other campaign information at the following links:

We have seen real momentum on our issue since the VEP's inception back in 2013, and we will continue to work as one part of the movement committed to achieving law reform.

Consider Your Vote

Fifty NSW members of the VEP came together to create two TV / Social Media commercials in the lead up to the March Election. All participants have their own personal stories or a strong belief that dying with dignity should be a basic human right. Please share this video to help us spread the word about the need for law reform.
