Description Parkes, ACT : Australian Electoral Commission, [2012] 
1 poster : colour ; 42 x 30 cm 
Summary

Colour lithographic poster issued to highlight the need for all Australians to enrol to vote and to keep their details current. The AEC's current data shows 1.5 million Australians, widely distributed throughout the community, are not enrolled to vote. The poster was issued as part of a national campaign launched on 29 May 2012, which included online advertising, stencil art on the pavements of capital cities, and community radio advertising and other media and public relations activities. 'Count Me In' is part of the AEC's 2012 Year of Enrolment, which marks the 100th anniversary of compulsory enrolment and the 50th anniversary of the Indigenous right to vote. The poster background is black with many purple circles in the foreground. The poster text is in yellow, pink and white.
