Kooyong Training Night: Election Day Volunteers

On the polling booth on election day is our last chance to speak to voters before they cast their ballot.

Every conversation, and every Julian Burnside How To Vote card in the hands of a voter is an opportunity to increase our chances of sending Julian to Canberra. As many as 1 in 3 voters at a polling booth decide who to vote for on the day, and we know from past elections that booths with lots of Greens volunteers perform dramatically higher.

We want to make sure that every voters sees one of our volunteers with a smiling face before they enter the booth. This training night will give you some of the tips and tricks to make your time at the polling booth most effective.

We will cover the rules and AEC requirements for volunteers on polling booths and give you some key talking points to help persuade voters that Julian Burnside would be their best representative. 

Please come along, bring a notepad to take any notes and get prepped for the big day!


A note on accessibility: The Hawthorn Library is a fully accessible venue. We welcome volunteers of all ages, abilities, diversity of genders, sexual identities, racial backgrounds, cultures, languages and experiences to join and get involved.

We acknowledge that this event takes place on the land of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation, that sovereignty was never ceded and pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging.
