Talking Vision is Vision Australia Radio’s flagship program, discussing the latest news and issues from a blindness and low vision perspective.
This week Peter Greco caught up with Sue Lang, the director of communication and engagement from the Victorian Electoral Commission (VEC), who provided all the latest information for the upcoming Victorian election.
Apart from voting in person with assistance from a person of their choice, voters are also able to apply for a postal vote, or can vote over the phone, which Sue said has been the most accessible way in the past for voters to cast their ballot.
Sue said the VEC’s top priority continues to be that the voting process is independent, verifiable and accessible for voters in Victoria who are blind or have low vision.
“We’re wanting to make sure that we have lots of safe and convenient ways in which people will be able to participate in the upcoming election,” Sue said.
“We would like to make sure that every person has their voice heard at this coming state election, it’s so important to make sure everybody is equal at the ballot box,” she said.
More information about the upcoming Victorian election can be found on the VEC website.
