ABC News (Australia) published this video item, entitled “Queensland election contests heat up in seats of Longman and Lilley | 7.30” – below is their description.

Labor has been pushing hard to take seats from the Morrison Government in Queensland which was a shining star for the Coalition last election and some analysts say it could be hard going for Labor this time too. As Michael Atkin reports, the question is whether cost of living pressures might persuade people to change their vote.

In This Story: Vote

Voting is a method for a group, such as a meeting or an electorate, in order to make a collective decision or express an opinion usually following discussions, debates or election campaigns. Democracies elect holders of high office by voting. Residents of a place represented by an elected official are called “constituents”, and those constituents who cast a ballot for their chosen candidate are called “voters”. There are different systems for collecting votes, but while many of the systems used in decision-making can also be used as electoral systems, any which cater for proportional representation can only be used in elections.

In smaller organizations, voting can occur in different ways. Formally via ballot to elect others for example within a workplace, to elect members of political associations or to choose roles for others. Informally voting could occur as a spoken agreement or as a verbal gesture like a raised hand or electronically.
