Adults and community groups

The Northern Territory Electoral Commission offers education programs, customised presentations and information sessions, as well as resources to government agencies, businesses, organisations and community groups.

English as a second language (ESL)

We have specific education programs for adults who do not have English as a first language. These programs use ESL teaching techniques, including simple visuals, hands-on activities and a mock election with a vote counting exercise to help develop understanding about:

  • democracy
  • three levels of government
  • who can vote
  • compulsory voting
  • secret ballot
  • democratic elections
  • how to vote
  • how votes are counted.
