Voting in Federal, State and Local Government Elections

We sometimes get questions from young people about voting.  Common questions include:

  • Is voting compulsory?

  • What happens if I don't vote?

  • Do I have to register to vote?  

If you have a question like this, or another question about voting, please send us a Lawmail and we would be happy to answer your question.

Please note: we cannot help anyone over 25 or students with assignment questions.
