How-To-Vote Cards

How-to-vote cards are a crucial part of Australian elections.

Because voting is compulsory and because compulsory preferential voting is used in Federal and some State elections, political parties and candidates distribute how-to-vote cards at polling booths in order to boost their chances of winning.

Deals between parties and candidates – exchanging preferences – means that how-to-vote cards have the ability to affect the outcome of elections.
