CHARLES Sturt University Bachelor of Communication students Xanthe Gregory and Reuben Spargo are presenting a new program, PolitiKnow.
This program will help students and young people voting for the first time in the upcoming federal election get information about policies and candidates.
They'll be interviewing students, young people and candidates and getting down to the nitty-gritty of what you need to know to make an informed vote.
Voting is compulsory in Australia and a cornerstone of our democracy. However, there are some places around the world not so fortunate.
Voting freely is a hard won right that we should not take for granted or waste.
PolitiKnow will have a wide social media presence, so you can tune in or check them out on Instagram, Facebook, YouTube and Twitter. The links will be available on the 2MCE Facebook page.
PolitiKnow will run on Thursdays at 6pm.
ARE you a subscriber of 2MCE?
2MCE is a community radio station and exists because of our subscribers - listeners just like you - and our sponsors.
Subscriptions assist with equipment, licences, and other resources needed to provide community broadcasting with local voices and significance.
Subscribers also have access to our vast music library, studio facilities and are able to vote at the annual general meeting of the Community Broadcasting Board.
New subscribers will also receive a 2MCE reusable coffee cup as a thank you for your support.
Subscriptions range from concession subscriptions to individual and family subscriptions.
Visit our Facebook page for more information and know you are supporting your local voices on air.
OUR programming over the Easter break will continue to entertain you, but some programs are taking a break.
Friday's and Monday's music will continue to be songs you want to hear, while our weekend programming will continue with favourites such as Tim Williams on breakfast, some great rock and roll, country and western and, of course, JukeBox on Saturday night.
IF you would like to get involved in the activities of 2MCE, please have a look at our volunteer application or program proposal at arts-ed.csu.edu.au/2mce or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We'd love to hear from you.
