Want to make sure you can have your say in the upcoming the Australian Marriage Law Postal Vote? You need to be enrolled to vote – and there’s an easy and fun way to do it this weekend.
Enrol For Equality Weekender is an initiative spearheaded by Heaps Gay, and they’d like everyone to make sure they register this weekend, plus have a drink or two while they do it.
“Almost 14% of young people are not enrolled to vote… That’s more than 800,000 people,” they explain on their website.
“We are encouraging everyone around Australia this weekend (August 17th-20th*) to throw a party, have a BBQ, run an event, open your café doors and join our nationwide enrolment drive for equality.”
There are a whole stack of parties being put on at bars and other venues where iPads will be provided to help making enrolling a breeze, with plenty of big locations getting on board! You can check the full list of parties and events here.
No events or parties near you? Don’t stress. Enrolling is super easy, and you can do it on the AEC website right now! Remember you need to be enrolled by August 24!
