Grateful for the right to vote

This week I’m grateful that I live in a democratic country and have the power to vote for my government. Tomorrow Australian’s will decide who leads the country for the next four years (or until the next leadership spill!). I could say a lot of negatives about the state of politics in Australia right now but instead I’m choosing to focus on the fact that I get to have my say.

  2. It used to frustrate me to no end (not so much in this country because voting is compulsory, but before I came to Australia) when people kept on complaining about the government and then choosing not to vote on election day. Nothing will get better unless you have your say.

  3. this is my first election where i can vote here – unfortunately i have no idea how it all works yet with the balloting but will figure it out. curious to see how it plays out xx

    • You know what? Every time I have to relearn how to do it! It’s quite complicated, I think. I don’t stay up to date with politics very well, all the in-fighting and mud slinging does my head in! Having said that we are living in a very wonderful country, and I’m grateful for that.

  4. I’m from Fiji and our political process is a mess, it was lovely to see the democratic process at work yesterday. With all the comments this morning about the new PM I’ve had to take a step back! This country has so much to be thankful for.

  5. Absolutely! I was kind of thinking how I was sick of all the media coverage of the campaigns etc but managed to remind myself that at least we get to have a say!
