Enrol to vote now
Next year there are two elections that will have a huge impact on the lives of working people – yet many NSWNA members may not be able to vote because they are not correctly enrolled. Now is the time to fix that by checking you are on the electoral roll at your correct address.
You should check your enrolment if:
The NSW election is on 24 March 2007. The federal election will take place later in 2007.
Both elections will be decided by small numbers of voters in a few key seats.
That’s why your vote can make a difference. So make sure you are correctly enrolled to vote.
It’s important to enrol as soon as possible because John Howard has changed the laws to make it harder to enrol. Once the Prime Minister calls the federal election, it will be too late to get on the electoral roll.
For more information on how to vote or to download an enrolment application form, visit the Australian Electoral Commission website at www.aec.gov.au or call (02) 6271 4411 or 13 23 26.
You can also pick up an enrolment application form at your local post office.
