VOTE FOR YOUR FUTURE
COMMUNITY NEWSPAPERS SAYS: IT’S NOT YOUR RIGHT, IT’S YOUR RESPONSIBILITY
PERTH’S residents have a woeful record of voting in local government elections and it’s well beyond time that changed.
Quite frankly, if you can’t be bothered checking a box on a ballot paper that has been delivered to your house and then taking it to a mailbox, you have no right to complain about all of the things councils do that affect your daily life.
At the local government elections in 2013 and 2015, an average of just 34 per cent voted in the Northam council elections and 29.45 per cent in York.
Across metropolitan Perth, the average was an appalling 27.5 per cent.
Do you not care about the impost of rates on your hip pocket during tough economic times?
Concerned your street has become a raceway for young hoons? Did you vote?
Postal votes started being delivered from September 27 if there is a contest in your area.
We implore you to fill it in and take it straight to the mailbox.
It is your duty and responsibility.
Shelia Davies, Gail Williams and Jess Nesbitt will be voting in the local goverment elections.
