The only registered voter at the outstation of Artekerre, about 50km north of Alice Springs in Australia’s Northern Territory, walks to the mobile polling station on Monday. According to local media, in the lead-up to the federal election on Sept. 7, 18 teams made up of staff from the Australian Electoral Commission and the Australian Federal Department of Human Services will set up mobile polling stations in over 200 remote Aboriginal communities and outstations in the Northern Territory. With no postal service or public transport, the mobile polling stations offer the only chance for people living in these remote communities to cast their vote.Sep 01, 2013FULL STORY
