Almost half a million young Australians arent on the electoral register, including 43 per cent of all 18- and 19-year-olds. Australias 2013 United Nations Youth Representative Adam Pulford wants young people to know they only have until 8pm on Monday to register to vote. Young people need to make sure they are enrolled now so they can vote for the candidates and leaders that best take action on the issues important to them this election, he said. A Whitlam Institute report found that the youth vote has been a major factor in determining who formed government in the past four federal elections. It also found young people are much more likely to vote based on issues, rather than with party allegiances. To register to vote visit aec.gov.au/enrol. Mark Munnich at the National Congress of Australias First Peoples in Cairns. Raise voice to have your say By MARK MUNNICH I AM 21 years old, born and raised in Darwin. I work at the Danila Dilba Health Service as a community engagement health promotion officer. From July 18-21 the National Congress of Australias First Peoples had its first meeting for 2013, which was held in Cairns. The meeting consisted of more than 120 delegates from all over Australia. I was selected as an individual delegate for a two year term with the Congress. The Congress is a unifying voice for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in Australia. I am proud and privileged to be a young Territorian putting forward my concerns and lobbying Congress about some of the indigenous issues in the Territory. Some of the concerns I raised included why young Territorians aged 18-25 years and the NT in general are underrepresented in the Congress statistics. I had asked of the Congress, In what ways can we further increase the level of representation within the organisation? As the only NT individual delegate I cannot do this alone. I call on all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and organisations to sign up with the Congress and become a part of this national unifying organisation. You will gain the chance to put forward your issues and concerns that affect your communities, and become involved in this national movement. Join mob for big festival fun THE City of Palmerston is giving you the chance to cross something off your all-important bucket list, but shhhhh! To be successful, it needs to be on the down low.

To get on board and find out more, head along to the Palmerston Library Community Room this Saturday from 10.30am-12.30pm, where full details will be disclosed. It could happen any time, at any place, and whether youre 12 or 82, they want you. Its free to be involved, and youll be rewarded with being part of a terrific community event.
