Comment on ‘Voter apathy greatest threat to Territory democracy’ by James T Smerk.

It’s great everyone having a vote. The trouble is when the vote is coming from someone who is uninformed and simply votes based on what they have been told by old mate ‘Fred’ which might or might not be based on facts.
Would be good to have unbiased forums and information sessions held in communities pointing out the differences on who you are voting for.
And not a system where they vote who they are told to by old mate who tells them how to vote at the front door.
