A Democratic Sausage is a great way to support your local school this Election Day.

With the federal election approaching, volunteers are working hard behind the scenes to ensure local schools are ready to play their part on election day.

Canberra’s Parents and Citizens Associations (P&Cs) will be hosting barbecues, bake sales and more to raise funds to support their initiatives.

If your appetite isn’t for Democratic sausages, you can still enjoy the action with plenty of schools offering various menu options, craft stalls, live music, entertainment and more.

Harrison School communications coordinator Kate Riley said she was thrilled to bring the school community together for a worthy cause.

“In previous election years, we received great support from the local community. Harrison School was one of the busiest polling places in Gungahlin and we hope to see it again this time around,” Kate said.
