QUICK QUESTIONNAIRE

“Why do you think Gen Y were so disengaged from this election?”

Keep it short and sweet!
Answer the Questions which apply to you
J

First Name:

Occupation/ Age:

Any formal/personal political affiliations? [I.e. Member of ALP, Liberal Party, Young Liberals etc]

 

What was your role in the recent Election? [I.e. Voter/Campaigner/ AEC Work]

 

Did you observe much media coverage [online, print, radio, TV etc] about the election? Discuss your observations:

 

In your role at the bygone election, what were some common attitudes you noticed? Specific issues mentioned?

 

If you worked for an MP/Political Party, did they undertake any specific means to target Gen Y? [18-24 y.os], were they considered a target group at all?

 

 

Why do you think Gen Y were disengaged from this election campaign/politics in general?

 

 

Describe your social media experience/observations in the lead up and after the election? What are people talking about?

 

 

What are your thoughts on this statistic: Only 5% [25 000] of 500 000 18 -24 yo.s registered to vote at this election, the AEC’s Campaign was deemed a failure, what do you think can be done to engage Gen Y better?

 

 

 

People vote for a party leader, not for a local member: TRUE/FALSE

 

Do you agree or disagree with the possibility of the voting age being raised to 21 again, so young people can make a more informed vote?

 

If there was a Gen Y-written blog on Politics, International issues and current affairs that you could connect with on Twitter, through Facebook and by email, would you read it and interact with it? [I.e. suggest issues to be written about to the author] and recommend it to your friends? Yes/No

Look forward to getting some responses!
