The privilege to vote and have a say in the shaping of our nation is just one of many good reasons to become an Australian Citizen. For those who are Australian citizens – whether it’s your first time voting or not – why not celebrate your freedom to vote with a Democracy Sausage?
Community groups and volunteers will be running sausage sizzles, cake stands and arts and crafts stalls at various polling booth locations on Election Day this Saturday 18 May 2019 – and the website, Democracy Sausage provides a rundown of all the locations where you can vote and snag a celebratory sausage here. After all, sausage sizzles are a great Australian tradition. Happy voting!
Australian Citizenship and Voting
Australian Citizens over the age of 18 have the right and responsibility to vote in Government elections. Voting is considered compulsory in Australia, and fines may apply if you do not cast your vote. As an Australian Citizen, you have the same opportunities as fellow Australians to voice your views and become an active part of the democratic process. You can even stand for election as a local councillor, state or federal MP, or senator.
