As we near the end of National Volunteer Week it seems fitting that today is election day. Millions of volunteers support the nation every day and are the backbone of our democratic processes. Volunteers have been actively campaigning for their local candidates throughout the election and will be cooking democracy sausages today to support schools and community groups. This Federal Election, Volunteering Australia called on all political parties and candidates to commit to a positive agenda on volunteering. Today we ask you to take notice of the volunteers in your community including those supporting democracy on election day and say thank you. #NVW2022 #bettertogether #waveforvolunteers ...
