Lane Cove Polling Venues and the all important Sausage Sizzle

sausage sizzle election

ITC knows some people who refuse to visit polling stations that do not host a sausage sizzle. In fact, we have heard that it is UnAustralian not to have a snag on Election Day!

This Saturday the 2nd of July is a Federal Election. For those who have voted early (pre-polling info here), you will have to head out an vote some time between 8am and 6pm on Saturday.

While there are always plenty of places to vote in the Lane Cove Council Area, only a handful of them will be serving up snag sambo’s to enjoy before or after you’ve filled out those confusing ballot papers.

If your organisation is holding a sausage sizzle, read our tips here on how to hold the perfect snag sizzle.

Just remember if you do not vote you will be fined. After the election, the AEC will send a letter to all apparent non-voters requesting that they either provide a valid and sufficient reason for failing to vote or pay a $20 penalty.

If, within the time period specified on the notice, you fail to reply, cannot provide a valid and sufficient reason or decline to pay the $20 penalty, then the matter may be referred to a court. If the matter is dealt with in court and you are found guilty, you may be fined up to $180 plus court costs and a criminal conviction may be recorded against you.
