How to vote, or avoid a fine, if you get COVID-19

Liberty Victoria president Michael Stanton told The Sunday Age the government should have made plans for this situation to ensure people who were sick with the virus could still vote.

“There is no good reason why, in a modern democracy, Victorians suffering from COVID-19 should be disenfranchised at the pending state election,” Stanton said.

“People should not be faced with a stark choice: that their vote remain uncast, or they expose fellow Victorians to the risk of contracting COVID-19.”
