Take back your future one vote at a time
From housing and unemployment to inaction on climate change, we’re getting seriously screwed over by those in power. Being heard starts with showing up – but one in ten of us haven’t enrolled to vote. It’s time to get our shit together and shake up the system. If we all enrolled, we’d show politicians that young people are here, we matter, and we’re a force to be reckoned with.
Get on board
We’ll help you get enrolled, remind you when you vote and take action on issues that matter.
A note from young votes
Enrolling to vote is bloody important. It doesn’t seem like a sexy or exciting thing to do, but we’re getting a raw deal and it’s time to get our leaders actually representing us. Like it or not, Victorian government decisions have very real impacts for our lives. They cover important stuff like healthcare, housing, environmental protection, and transport. Every time you give up the chance to vote, you’re leaving your future in the hands of other people who don’t stand for what you do. By enrolling, voting and working together on the issues that matter, we can take ownership over our future. – Cat + Lee & Alex (Young Vote-rs)
I enrolled to vote so I’d be taken seriously by the people in power. This will be my first time voting in a state election – and I’m using my vote to call for action on climate change and housing affordability.
“The first election I voted in I was like ‘Mum, what do I do? Who do I put??’… but I can see now that I am against certain parties and I’m definitely for some of them. If I care about refugees, I’m going to vote for a party that also cares and has sympathy for people.” – Jade, 26
