How to vote, but not who to vote for…

 

Luke explains how a man from Africa who spoke to him on the radio taught him how to enjoy a hot dog, face painting and the joy of voting in Australia.

He also sets himself the challenge of working out how he should vote in 1 hour! By following these 4 steps:

1. Work out which electorate he is in

2. Understand what  he is voting for (what is the Senate and the House of Representatives?)

3. Use online tools to work out which parties/individuals match his values

4. Write down who he wants to vote for!

If you want to do the same the following links might help you out…
