ElectionsACT are pointing out that huge swathes of young Canberrans are not registered to vote:
Only 60% of eligible 18-year-olds and just under 50% of eligible 19-year-olds were enrolled by Friday 14 September. Around 80% of 20-24 year-olds were on the roll.
“Time is running out to enrol. If you have recently turned 18 or 19, or you are 17 and will turn 18 on or before polling day, you should enrol now,” Mr Green said.
Now listen up Yoof. If you’re so massively under enrolled political parties will tailor their policies to benefit the old buggers who are signed up.
