Breakfasters: How to Make your Vote Count with Emma Buckley Lennox
In 2016 Emma Buckley Lennox’s Facebook video about senate changes went viral. Since then, the lawyer and part-time democracy influencer has been making content about how to vote on various platforms such as Instagram and TikTok. She joins Breakfasters to discuss how to not waste your vote this Saturday. Emma says that the changes made to senate voting in 2016 still confuse people and many people believe that parties control preferences. However, she says this isn’t true and that you have complete control of your vote. She suggests reading up on candidates and making sure you understand the voting procedure, as your preferences may have a big impact in a tight election like this one.
