Get out and vote

Officially the election isn't until September 20. But advance voting opened today. Personally I enjoy the festival atmosphere of election day, and will be wandering along to my normal polling station to soak it up, but if you can't wait, you can vote early. Thanks to some changes made in 2010, you don't need a reason to do this - its your right to vote early. So, if you want to make sure you don't forget, or you want to get the damn thing over with, or you just feel like it, go ahead and vote! You can find details of where and how here.

You can also vote from overseas here, by downloading, printing, signing, scanning and uploading a ballot paper.

Remember, democracy is a participatory sport, and you have to be in to win. Your vote is a weapon. If you want your opinions to be taken into account, use it.
