It's amazing how powerful a piece of paper can be
on election day. Your vote will help shape Australia so it's important that you
understand how to make it count. On election day,
you'll receive two ballot papers - a green one for
the House of Representatives and a large white one for the Senate. On the green ballot paper, you put a 1 in the box beside the
candidate who is your first choice, then a 2 in the box
beside your second choice and so on until
you've numbered every box. This election, the way you vote
for the Senate has changed. On the white Senate ballot paper, you now need to put
a 1 in the box above the line for the party or group
that is your first choice, then a 2 in the box
for your second choice and so on until you've numbered
at least 6 boxes or you can choose
to vote below the line by numbering at least 12 boxes
for individual candidates in order of your choice. To learn more, visit or call 13 23 26.
