Uncommon Sense: Why Voting is Compulsory in Australia

We take our voting for granted, but how much do you actually know about the history of compulsory voting in Australia? Judith Brett, Emeritus Professor of Politics at La Trobe University, visits Amy to discuss the evolution of Australian politics, how we invented the ballot paper, and her new book, From Secret Ballot to Democracy Sausage: How Australia Got Compulsory Voting.
