Democracy in Action is an innovative civics engagement project
giving young people practical skills in enrolling and completing a
ballot paper.

DiA was designed by the Commissioner for Children and Young People in partnership with the Centre of Democracy and Electoral
Commission SA. Launched just before the 2018 South Australian
election by Commissioner Helen Connolly and electorate of Adelaide
candidates B-J Price (Dignity Party), Robert Simms (The Greens SA),
Rachel Sanderson (Liberal Party).

“We have clearly different values and morals to the generations that have come before and I think that the way things are changing especially with technology and media that our opinions on global
issues are very different from our parents or our grandparents.”
— Austin (17)
