Two posters designed for the South Australian Electoral Commission to explain how to vote in the upcoming state election. The posters are designed for voters who are unfamiliar with how the process works or have limited English.

More information and links to some of the resources can be found at:

and details of the Project at:

The resources have used cartoons and graphics to help explain the project’s aims of awareness, practice change and reduction. Cartoons can (I hope!) connect with a reader, empathise, and help them through the text.

Here are some examples.
