Think WEL before you vote - Discussion group for first time voters
This discussion group is a chance to talk about voting, elections and how to let your MP know your concerns. Women who will be voting for their first or second time in upcoming elections are invited to join us.
This is an informal, conversational gathering and will be hosted by the Women's Electoral Lobby (WEL) on Saturday 19 May, 2018 at 4pm at WEL's Sydney office, 8-10 Victoria Street, Newtown NSW 2042.
We will have WEL representatives who can answer any questions you may have about the voting process, from what to expect when you go to a polling booth, what terms like 'voting below the line' mean and why they are useful, how to work at a polling booth on election day, as well as answering questions that you may have about the federal and state elections in the next 12 months.
It's a chance to have a chat about voting and issues with other young women before you head into the polling booth.
We would also like to hear from you about:
- How you feel about voting in your first state and federal elections.
- What you already know about elections.
- Whether there are aspects of voting that you are unclear about.
- Which issues affecting young women concern you the most.
WEL will communicate your concerns with candidates for NSW and Federal elections. Your conversations with us can form part of that feedback.
Drinks and nibbles will be provided for the 90 minute chat.
Please RSVP below for catering purposes.
