“IVE DONE MY VOTING ONLINE ALREADY” one Lake Maquarie resident said yesterday. “You just go to the ABC voting site and vote there.
It seems he is not the only one who has mistaken the ABC Compass online survey as a legitimate vote casting site and who may later be penalised for not voting in the official poll.
Online voting was an option in the State election, but is not available for the Federal election, though over a million voters have already sent in their postal vote.
It appears some are hearing the ABC invitation to go to their site to vote as an easy option.
