It most certainly is part of my curriculum. Each school in Australia receives a pack from the federal government asking that year 12s fill out a tax file number application and an electoral role application in the year before they turn 18. Whether or not it is completed is up to the school and the child and their family. I am pretty ruthless in my follow up as I would like all of my students to have their say in the democratic process. I remind them that voting is a privilege and that for women in particular there are many countries where they do not have a vote.
For the last 10 years as a polling place manager I have involved the senior students in the prepoll set up in the school library: counting the ballot papers, setting up the cardboard stations etc and the hours they work contribute to their community service requirements for graduation. They love it! It's also an interesting and very well paid day should they sign themselves up to work an election once they turn 18.
