Self-determination for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Communities
We are active supporters of self-determination. Our Statement on Self-Determination and Improved Outcomes for Aboriginal Victorians outlines our commitment to advancing self-determination in line with the Victorian Aboriginal Affairs Framework.
Access and inclusion
Our Access and Inclusion Plan aims to improve access to enrolment and voting for Victorians living with a disability. The Access and Inclusion Plan has six strategies to improve access to the electoral process and the VEC itself. We also hold outreach sessions to educate people about the voting rights of people with a disability.
We work to ensure that people from diverse language and cultural backgrounds understand their democratic rights and responsibilities. To support this, we partner with service providers and community leaders, provide culturally responsive services and promote active citizenship.
Voting without a home
Being homeless does not make you voteless. We work with community agencies to help people experiencing homelessness to participate in local council and State elections.
We are committed to reducing the environmental impact of our activities. To achieve this, we have an Environmental Management Strategy with a set of objectives and action plans.
