2016 Federal election - information page

With still another three and a half weeks to go until the Federal election on 2 July 2016, we have posted a page at the list under the blog banner at the top of this page.

It will give links to information in Easy English about how the election works, and links to policy information from political parties and disability organisations.

The links to policies are posted for information only, not to endorse any particular political position, party or candidate.

The page is called FEDERAL ELECTION 2016 - INFORMATION

The page currently has information from two previous posts on the election, and the information below. It will be added to as the campaign progresses:
