Enrol to Vote Week. Enrol to Vote Week (ETVW) is running in Australian Secondary Schools from 17-23 May 2010. The theme this year is ‘you never know when an election might be called’. This year the AEC is aiming to get 21,000 students aged 17 and 18 years old enrolled to vote.
An election could be called at any time.
So keep your enrolment up to date so you don’t miss out on your vote.
Since the 2007 federal election there has been at least one election in every state and territory – over 82 in total.
18 year olds are under represented on the electoral roll compared with other Australian electors.
Your vote can make a difference!
