Richard at 20 Gram Soul points out how you can help the Secular Party of Australia during their upcoming elections. If you’re Australian or you know someone who is, keep reading.
As long as a certain quota of members is met, the group’s name can be used when its members run for office (instead of them having to run as independents).
So help the group out by getting Australians to fill out this form (PDF) and send it in. It’ll cost the person a stamp.
Frank Gomez of the Secular Party says this:
We currently have around 300 members and need only 200 more in order to register as a party for this year’s election. Registering the party would mean being able to use the party’s name and abbreviations in how to vote cards and ballot papers, and would increase out vote many fold.
[If you don't register,] we need to wait another 3 years to contest as a registered party. That’s another 3 years of more religion in politics – whoever wins the election. MAKE A DIFFERENCE !!
