Following reddragdiva's heads-up, I trekked down to the Australian Embassy in Rome to see about voting in the upcoming election and what needs to be done. I found that the embassy was closed until Monday (i.e., after enrolments close), as they're relocating it. Coincidence, or conspiracy to disenfranchise non-Tory-voting pinko backpacker types in Italy?

Anyway, I've checked my enrolment online, and it's valid. With any luck, I should be able to vote in London just by rocking up on the day with my passport. (There's nothing there saying one can't, as far as I can see.)

What sort of buzz are you picking up from afar? I will say that there's definitely a different tone to the campaign than the last one. In spite of the ebullience of some anti-government pundits, it's still waaay too early to tell whether you turn out to have escaped another few years of Liberal stupidity...

I haven't had opportunity to read the Australian press, given that my internet access is rather limited here.

Excuse me?
I don't take instructions on how to vote from strangers.

yeah, I'd say as long as you're properly enrolled you should be able to lodge an absentee vote at any Aust embassy or consulate - I'm sure there'll be lots of queuing up and palaver, though, so take a book and a sandwich!
