Voting in the Australian elections by post

Thoughts

Clara and I just sent in our votes. We may not be in the electorate on voting day, so we were approved for a postal ballot. Voting is compulsory in Australia, though even if it weren’t, its still a civic responsibility.

My kudos to the AEC for making this so easy. In past years I’ve voted early, but this was even better. About the only difficulty was refolding that metre-long senate paper!
