The ACT Electoral Commission, in conjunction with the ACT Legislative Assembly education office, produces a range of material for education purposes. Commission staff are also available to visit schools and community groups to conduct education sessions.

ACT Electoral Commission education policy

Objectives:

  1. To ensure that the voters of the ACT know at election time when the election is to be held, where and when they can vote, how to vote and when a timely, accurate and transparent result is expected.
  2. To facilitate school and community programs which place elections within a civics and citizenship framework, illustrate the process of the Hare-Clark electoral system and encourage enrolment.
