An election is looming!

It appears from the actions during a parliamentary session recently that there will be an election during August. The terms of half the senators end on 30 June 2017. Writs for a half-Senate election cannot be issued earlier than 1 July 2016, and the earliest possible date for a Lower House/half-Senate election is 6 August 2016. It is predicted that the election will be slightly longer and possibly 13 August 2016. You need to check and see that you are enrolled...see the link on this site to the (Aust Electoral Commission) AEC. I predict they might go earlier.
