Monto woman keeps re­gion up­dated

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

MONTO res­i­dent Karen Wil­liams has been busy keep­ing peo­ple up­dated on the elec­tion re­sult through her Face­book page Elec­torate of Flynn – Fed­eral Elec­tion 2016.

Mrs Wil­liams said she was fas­ci­nated with the re­sults.

“It’s been chop­ping and chang­ing, you never can tell,” she said.

“I just find it fas­ci­nat­ing like see­ing how you can have a protest vote that will swing against one party and new par­ties will come along that will have a sud­den rise in votes, politi­cians that are a bit smug might lose there seats, that’s a bit funny, it’s in­ter­est­ing watch­ing how peo­ple vote.”

Mrs Wil­liams said her and her hus­band fol­lowed pol­i­tics en­thu­si­as­ti­cally.

“Hubby and I tend to watch elec­tions as oth­ers watch footy fi­nals, we get all into it,” she said.

“I take vot­ing se­ri­ously, I al­ways have.

“I know a lot of peo­ple hate it and find pol­i­tics bor­ing, but with the page I wanted to get the in­for­ma­tion out there that was easy for peo­ple to un­der­stand, as well try to make it im­par­tial by not push­ing my own po­lit­i­cal lean­ings, throw­ing in a bit of hu­mour, so that peo­ple could have a lit­tle more knowl­edge than they al­ready did.”

She said she hoped to con­tinue and ex­pand on her page at the next elec­tion.

“I’ve had peo­ple ask me if I had a web­site, which I’m hop­ing to do next time.”
