The Australian has a story which includes these sentiments:
- "KEVIN Rudd maintains a staggering primary-vote lead of 750,000 among voters aged 18-34, and this group alone could deliver power to Labor next Saturday.
- "The Coalition has 17 seats in the youth belt with margins of less than 7 per cent. Another eight seats not normally considered marginal are also in play because they carry above-average concentrations of younger voters."
Make your vote count.
- How to complete the ballot paper
- To vote for a Member of the House of Representatives, an elector is required to write the number ‘1’ in the box next to the candidate who is their first choice, and the numbers ‘2’, ‘3’ and so on against all the other candidates, in order of the elector’s preference.
- Ballot papers which are not marked according to the rules for voting are called informal votes. Ballot papers cannot be counted if they are informal.
The Liberal/National/Family First control of the Senate is a strangle-hold on our democratic rights.
