Why does voting matter?


As small or insignificant as one vote might seem, elections have been won and lost on a knife-edge. Many recent elections have been very close, so never doubt that your vote counts. Voting helped the Greens to have over 40 elected members across state and federal politics. By voting, you’re sending a signal to the Parliament and the community about the issues you care about. Go into the polling booth informed, and make your vote count!

To find out more about how voting works, head to the Australian Electoral Commission website, where there is lots of information and videos about how the electoral system works.
