Vote Australia today launched a 'Rate your voting experience' campaign through social media inviting Australian voters to rate and comment on their experiences of voting in the 2019 federal election.
The campaign seeks comments from voters about actual experiences of the entire voting process from enrolment to casting their ballots with emphasis on their experience of the voting process at the polling place they visited.
The social media campaign directs voters to a blog on the Vote Australia website where they can post and share comments about what they experienced.
A simple 5-star rating system lets voters rate their experience. Voters can also leave comments explaining their rating and can comment on others' blog posts
The focus of the blog is the voter's experience of the polling-place process and procedures and not the candidates, the parties, party, campaigns or policies.
As part of its voter-education and information focus, Vote Australia aims to use insights received from the public during the 2019 federal election to engage voters in future live-event discussions about ways that election processes are working and could work better with a focus on ensuring that the interests of voters are protected.
The 'Rate your voting experience' campaign will run for up to two weeks after election day, Saturday 18 May 2019.
