I know you’re probably sick of hearing it by now, but the Federal Election has been re-announced and is set to take off on September 7. But for a lot of you, this probably means nothing. But let me tell you something, it means a lot.
Firstly, it’s important that if you’re over the age of 18, you should enrol to vote. It’s super simple – all you have to do is fill out a form online, and that’s it! And I’ll make it easy for you, here’s the link!
Now that you’ve done that, you’re probably thinking, “now who do I vote for?!” That’s normal, I was the same, and still am a little bit. But, thanks to the ABC, I had a quick look at their web app that helps you figure out where you’re politically aligned. It’s called Vote Compass and although it might not give you an exact answer, it might guide you in the right direction. I’ll make it easy for you again. Here’s the link!
Hopefully that’ll get you started and thinking about the election. And don’t forget, you only have until 8pm Monday 12th August to enrol! It’s simple!
Until next time, happy enrolling!
