Sandell calls on young people: make your voice heard this election.

Greens Candidate for the seat of Melbourne, Ellen Sandell is calling for young Victorians to enrol to the electoral role to take part in the State Election.

“93% of Victorians are enrolled to vote, which is above the national average. However, youth enrollment is 13% below the average - meaning 1 in 5 young people aren't enrolled. This could have a huge impact on the outcome of the election. Today Napthine has gone to visit Governor Alex Chernov, signalling that the countdown to the election is on. Now is the time for people to check their details and make sure they're heard at this election.”

“Victoria’s political engagement has consistently ranked above the national average and the Greens know that young people have an important part to play in state politics. It’s essential that their voices are heard.”
 
“At the by-election here in Melbourne the Greens lost by only 400 votes. It was uni holidays, so there was a much lower turn out rate for young people. Young people will have the power to decide the outcome of the election in a number of seats, including right here in Melbourne.”
 
“Enrolling is easier than ever before - people can head to https://www.vec.vic.gov.au/Enrolment/Default.html and complete their enrolment online.”
