You have until 5pm tomorrow (Tuesday 31 March) to make a submission to the Justice and Electoral Select Committee on their post-election review of our voting system.
ActionStation have provided an online submission form and compiled some ideas:
- Civics education
- Compulsory voting (with a “no confidence” option?)
- Clarity about social media rules, third-party promoter rules and ballot rules
- Lowering the voting age to 16
- Making Election Day a national holiday
- Online voting
- Tax incentives for voting
What do you reckon?
