The title of this blog is a quote from one of our self-advocates from our self-advocacy plus group held on Monday.
With the ACT Election now less than a week away, we had Marie from the Elections ACT office come in and join us as a guest speaker.
There were numerous questions from where and how to vote, pre-voting and voting by mail.
Our self-advocates posed questions about the new electorates in Canberra and how and why the electorates were changed.
There was lots of discussion about why we vote and members shared points that are of importance to them and how to see what the parties are representing for this election.
Following this, some members stated they would be interested in the possibility of running for Parliament themselves in the future. Again the group became a great platform for members to share their experiences and educate others.
The next Self-advocacy Plus group is on 14 November
