FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The Vote Talk Program is back to help make voting at the 2022 federal election simple and easy for everyone to understand.
Through podcasts, community conversations and radio interviews in different languages, Australians will hear members of their community talk about elections, voting and how people can make sure their vote counts.
In partnership with the Australian Electoral Commission, the Vote Talk Program provides accessible information to all Australian citizens so that they can understand the voting process and make informed decisions during elections.
Questions addressed in the Vote Talk Program in 12 different languages include: How does the government and parliament really work? What do I need at election time? Or will my vote really make a difference in my community? Are
Mary Karras, CEO of the Ethnic Communities’ Council of NSW said: “We are incredibly proud of the partnership with the Australian Electoral Commission. This project is about empowering our culturally diverse communities by providing them with information in a context and language, which they understand. By doing so we empower them to make informed choices and decisions about voting in Australian elections.”
“This partnership demonstrates that it is not just about delivering information. It is about delivering simple messages, in language, using trusted voices, and harnessing the power of ethnic radio.”
