First Time Voters

The 2007 Federal election was a watershed moment in Australian politics; a fresh-faced but inexperienced leader faced a battle-hardened veteran whose ideas, many said, felt stale. With the youth vote targeted like never before, VEA captured the thoughts, hopes and aspirations of five young people as they voted for the first time. Roxxy, Fin, Ben, Ella and Chris shared with us their thoughts on democracy, compulsory voting, Australia’s parliamentary system and how they would decide who to vote for via the policies, personalities and media influence. This engaging programme is fascinating reflection on the decision-making process and political engagement of this complex generation.
