VOTE FOR YOUR FUTURE
www.communitypix.com.au d474171 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.
With about 24 per cent voter participation in the past two local government elections, the City of Rockingham and City of Kwinana come in under the Perth metropolitan average.
Do you not care about the impost of rates on your hip pocket during tough economic times?
Are you unconcerned about high-rise buildings popping up in surrounding streets?
Concerned your street has become a raceway for young hoons? Did you vote?
Postal votes will arrive in your letterbox 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.
