Help ex-pat Australians vote for liberty

Do you want to spread liberty around the world? Are you based in London? Are you interested in learning about a completely different voting system and helping others to exercise their democratic rights?

The Australian Liberal Democrats need your help. They are the only classical liberal party with an elected national representative in the world – Senator David Leyonhjelm. They need polling workers in the immediate run up to their general election day, Saturday July 2nd.

Volunteers who will be based at the Australian High Commission (based on the Aldwych near Holborn – it makes a famous appearance as Gringotts in the Harry Potter films). You will help inform Australian citizens based in the United Kingdom how to vote. The Australian ballot is much more complex than Britain’s first-past the post system. As a result, parties are encouraged to have informed representatives to explain the voting options to their supporters.

Volunteers can be any nationality. People do not need a connection with Australia to help get the vote out in London.

As well as helping to spread classical liberal ideas, this is ideal experience for anyone with an interest in political science and alternative voting systems. Australian volunteers will provide training.

The Australian Liberal Democrats will be very grateful for your support.

Volunteers are urged to contact Helen Dale, Senior Advisor to Senator David Leyonhjelm on Helen.Dale@aph.gov.au
