This Federal Election, our team focused on delivering content related to some of the top issues concerning Australian Youth according to our community.

YOUTH VOTE IS HERE TO STAY
The Australian Youth enrolment rate hit its highest point ever this election at 88.8%!
WHY IS THIS AMAZING AGAIN?
This is amazing because it shows that Australian youth are voting and they’re here to stay!
Record amounts of youth enrolled to vote during the 2016 Election and during the Marriage Act Postal Survey in 2017.
After the number of youth decreased, making Australians worried that not enough young Australians would get involved next election.
But this was proved wrong just before the election! And because of this increasing number, we decided to focus our content on what was relevant to young Australians to help them continue to get involved in our elections and shape their own political views.
