NSW state election today

NSW Coat of ArmsNSW is having a State Election today. And as 7News mentioned it nicely, “Voters have a choice between a Government widely disliked and an Opposition many think do not have a chance to win.”

And the stupid thing about this state election? voting is compulsory. If you failed to vote (without good excuse), you will be fined for $25 (AUD) and up to $55 (plus court costs) if the matter goes to court.

By law, every Australian citizen resident in NSW who is 18 years of age or older is required to enrol and vote a federal, state and local government elections and referendums.

Well, election is boring in my opinion.

The picture on top of this blog entry is NSW Coat of Arms.

The NSW Coat of Arms was granted by King Edward VII in Oct 1906. It features a shield containing the badge of NSW together with wheat and sheep symbols on a blue background. The shield is supported by a lion, representing England, and a kangaroo, representing Australia. The crest is a rising sun, representative of a newly rising country. The Latin motto means "Newly risen, how bright thou shinest", as shown by the rising sun. It also refers to the State's continuing progress and development.

The election results will be available from 6pm tonight.
