Voting at Australia House in London can make a difference
Labor representative Paul Smith, President of ALP Abroad, urged overseas Australians, particularly those in the UK, to make sure they are registered to vote.
“In the last election, the closest seat of Herbert was determined by overseas votes, so every vote counts. I urge Australians in London to make sure they are enrolled to vote,” Smith said.
“And vote Labor for an Australia to be proud of when overseas and provide a fair go for all when they go home,” he added.
