Victorian election officially called

On Tuesday, Governor Alex Chernov issued the writs to formally call a Victorian election for Saturday, 29 November 2014. Unlike the Commonwealth, Victoria has fixed four-year parliamentary terms, with elections usually held on the last Saturday in November. Enrolment and voting is compulsory for all adult citizens who have lived in Victoria for more than one month. The deadline to enrol or update your details is 8:00pm on Tuesday, 11 November 2014. Students who are over 16 or 18 may be interested in working for the VEC on election day. Election-specific news coverage can be found at the Herald-SunThe Age, and the ABC.
