Three political parties are facing deregistration in Tasmania - one as a result of an application to cancel its registration, and two which failed to give information about party registers.

The Tasmanian Electoral Commission (TEC) received an application to cancel the registration of Pauline Hanson's One Nation party, according to a notice by electoral commissioner Andrew Hawkey on Saturday.

The party has until October 26 to lodge an objection, but if no objection is received, the TEC will delete Pauline Hanson's One Nation from the party register.

One Nation registered prior to the 2018 state election but have not run any candidates.

Mr Hawkey also published that the Australian Christians and Socialist Alliance parties had failed to return their review of party registration forms.

The two parties were asked on August 10 to provide updated information about registered members as part of a review of party registers.

Neither party returned the forms by the due date.

They now have 30 days to to provide the required information to the TEC.
