Prepolling Opened Today


We are off and running, with a cloudy and somewhat coolish start to prepolling at Virginia Park Bentleigh this morning, The usual mob turned out, Libs and Labs, with welcome extra, from the United Firefighters Union UFU  handing out a don’t vote Napthine leaflets. We has a 2 voters in the first 30 mins. Otherwise a quiet beginning. UPDATE  300 people cast their vote on Monday.

Together we have done amazing things

Dear Greens supporter
This campaign has covered every corner of three electorates, spoken to hundreds of voters, attended and spoken at dozens of forums, run our most active social media campaign ever. Our candidates Margie, Sean and Adam have given their all for months on end. Not just active in their own areas, they have knocked on hundreds of doors in Prahran, our winnable seat in the south.
However, one thing remains.
The Greens get about 1/3rd of our vote from staffing early voting and election day booths. For many voters this is the only time they will see a Green all election cycle. A smiling, friendly Greens volunteer can make the difference between a vote for the old parties and a vote for us.
If we haven’t been in contact with you about staffing a polling booth yet, don’t wait and please give us a call.
Together, we can make the difference. We know it works!
