Blah blah blah. Hello my fellow obliged-by-law-to-vote-and-we-damn-well-like-it-that-way resident citizens. If you’re not on the roll at all, you need to get on by Wednesday, see here. If you have to update your address you have until October 23 (a week from Tuesday). If you haven’t updated your address, you eventually get thrown off via this process.
November 24, second Federal election in a row for which I’ll be overseas. Maybe I’ll do the voting at the airport thing. Andrew may have to postal vote.
After the government for the next term is decided, I’m writing to it in support of fixed terms. (Apparently this doesn’t require a referendum like the 1988 proposal, unless they also try and change the length of the terms.)
