Live from Sydney, Australia

Steve Grove, Why Tuesday? advisory board member and the editor of YouTube News & Politics is down under launching the new YouTube platform there. In the video he posted today, Steve points out that the election season is only six weeks in Australia, compared to what he calls “24 bloody years” here in America. He’s not that far off.
What does that mean for voter turnout? Well, Australia is near the top of the pack when it comes to voter turnout world wide. They have compulsory voting, too, so that probably helps. Check out Steve’s dispatch from down under, in which he also riffs on the Australian national elections going on right now.
