Election

Today, Julia Gillard has visited the Governor General to ask her to dissolve parliament.   She has decided to have the election on August 21st, meaning that  the writs will be issued on Monday night.  This means that, while we have a permanent electoral roll here in Australia, anyone who has moved house or turned 18 in the last three years (since the last federal election) needs to make sure that they are properly enrolled for this election before 8.00 pm on Monday.
I  have been endorsed as the Greens candidate for the electorate of Wakefield.  It seems that the next five weeks will be very busy.
