Voting in an election can be a confusing and daunting process for many people. From knowing how to enrol, to voting at a polling place or voting by mail, the information about how to vote can be long, complex and hard to understand.
In anticipation of the 2019 federal election, we recently worked with the Australian Electoral Commission (AEC) to update three of its easy-to-read-guides. These guides included:
- How to enrol to vote
- How to vote at a polling place
- How to vote by mail.
The AEC wanted to update the guides to ensure that the target audiences – people with disability, adults with low levels of literacy and people who speak English as a second language – have the information that they need to successfully take part in the next federal election.
You can find all three guides on the AEC website.
