I'm expecting to possibly get a letter soon. I'm actually very politically aware and always involved with election lead-ups, but recently there were some council elections in Sydney. Both of us totally had no idea - we got nothing in the mail about it. A couple of election signs suddenly appeared on a nearby flagpole about 2 days before we went away o/s on holiday & I went WTF?? The election was the day we were getting back (but we got back early evening so too late to vote).
We were only gone for just over a week, so they literally only put up signs less than 2 weeks before the election & that was the only indication we had. Well organised. There wasn't really enough time to organise a postal vote, and ... well, it was a council election. Will see if we even get a letter about it.

Didn't vote and got a fine
I agree voting is a privilege but I don't agree with it being compulsory. Just another revenue raiser i think. I don't like scare tactics, we are a democracy and i don't think we should be treated like naughty children if we chose not to vote, that's our right or it should be.

Re: Didn't vote and got a fine
If i could be guaranteed my personal details would be kept private i would happily vote. I'm sure others would be in this situation as well.

And no one is treated like a naughty child for not voting, lots of people have their name marked off then choose not to vote. Or are you talking about being penalized when you don't turn up and have no reason at all except I don't wanna so why should I?
