Today Australians cast their vote in the federal election. Vibewire, an innovative non-profit youth organisation providing media, arts & entrepreneurial opportunities and events for young people have been covering the election via teams of young journalists spread across the country.
Here, Margaret Paul interviews ABC Political reporter Stephen Dziedzic to get the lowdown on what’s happening in the nation’s capital, Canberra. Later tonight, Margaret will also be filing reports from the Tally Room. And in an election that is expected to come down to the wire, it could well be the youth vote that makes all the difference.
