Understanding The Australian Election ft. Left Right Out

Posted: 3 May 2022 12:01 am

From how the voting system actually works to which parties line up with your values, here's everything you need to know before you hit the polls this year.

With the Australian Federal Election coming up on 21 May, Sal & Al brush up on their politics before they hit the polls. The gals chat with Elfy Scott and Justine Landis-Hanley, the hosts of the political podcast Left Right Out, to get the lowdown on democracy.

They look at how the Australian voting system actually works and why you might want to reconsider voting for the same party as your parents.

Plus, a quick-fire game of which parties have the best policies for everything from housing affordability and HECs debt to LGTBQI+ rights.

Big ol' disclaimer: We couldn't possibly cover everything in a single podcast episode, so please make sure to do your research before election day.
