Election Day 2010!
Today Australia votes for a new Prime Minister with a federal election. It is compulsory to vote here in Australia and as much as this time it was tempting to make a 'donkey' vote I take my responsibility seriously, I figure you cannot complain in the future if you have not taken advantage of your vote. Because I am off to the boarding house to work this morning SH, HS and I voted yesterday afternoon. It was HS's first time to vote and I am proud to say him and his friends discussed the issues that affect them and he made a decision about how to vote, very different from when I first started voting and you automatically voted the way your parents had!!!
