We all have to vote in the Victorian state election and Voices for Indi would encourage you to go into that electoral booth with an understanding of who you are voting for and why you are voting for them.
State elections are held on the fourth Saturday of November every four years. The next State election will be held on Saturday 29 November 2014.
Victoria is divided into 88 districts (the Lower House) and eight regions (the Upper House). In a State election, you vote for one representative for your district and five representatives for your region.” Learn more here.
