Voters Turn Out for Election Pre-Poll
Ahead of the 2019 Federal Election, voters are turning out in force to vote before election day on May 18. Previous trends have indicated that this election will see a record number of voters having their say in the three weeks of pre-polling before election day. Reporter William Ton looks into the reasons why this is the case and if it has any implications on Australia’s democratic system.

Guests:
Dr Stephen Mills, Honorary Senior Lecturer with the School of Social and Political Sciences at the University of Sydney
