Our Purpose

The Voluntary Euthanasia Party (VEP) was created to provide the compassion, dignity and choice that current legislation is denying terminally and incurably ill Australians. The party hopes to provide a clear political outlet for the overwhelming public support for voluntary euthanasia.

If you are one of the 85% of Australians who support voluntary assisted dying, please consider joining the Voluntary Euthanasia Party, it's free, or just sign up as a supporter using the Stay in Touch button below.

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 2015 NSW State Election. All participants have their own personal stories or a strong belief that dying with dignity should be a basic human right.
