BTN-History of Voting





This BTN video was about voting for something like president, senators etc. And how women couldn’t vote.

In the 1800 of Australia women couldn’t vote because they were too emotional and weren’t smart for politics. In the late 1800 women wanted to demand change, and started voting rights known as suffragettes. Suffrage to vote for politicians. 

In 1902, Australia became the first to have women vote. But it took over 2 decades to follow. Even if women could vote Aboriginals still couldn’t and they were left out. 

Until 1962 they finally let the aboriginals vote. But you had to be 21. That’s why voting is really important.


My 1st question is in 1902 shouldn’t they already give permission to all women like aboriginals and others?

My 2nd question is when did voting start?

I now understand that voting is very serious in Australia

100WC-… but how did he/she get up there?…

I was watching TV when the person said that a baby somehow got up a roof, how did that baby get up there like on top of the roof? I was wondering for two straight hours thinking and thinking I thought of adults helping the baby get on the roof, the baby climbing up a ladder I really did not know. Finally, I realized that it was an 18-year-old person! He was dressed up in a suit climbing things to get on. That is the only thing I could think have I finally went to sleep and didn’t think about anything.

BTN-Voting Changes





This BTN video was about how the Prime minister wants to make changes to being Senate. And the voters aren’t getting their say.

My first recall is that people were really surprised that the Senates vote were a about a fraction and others were maybe higher.

My second recall is that people vote for their favorite senate to until it ends, and the people who count the vote it would take too long so they choose for the number one that it should get put in, the name is the group voting ticket.

My last recall is that lots of small political parties mostly make ‘preference deals’ and they agree on a preference deal.

My first question is most of time why does people who have like .51% of people vote for this senate and like another 3.51% of people want this senate and the .51% wins?

My second question is that why is the government planning on getting rid of the group voting tickets?

My insight is I now understand that the prime minister is thinking of changing how the senate will be elected and I also now know more about Senates.

I was going to France to see this massive cup it took 10 hours to get to France. Anyway when I got there I saw the amazing cup the origin says that they wanted to explore this country before it was called France then when they were exploring a human yelled. The other explorers saw that he was crushed and they also saw a enormous cup. It looked like a royal family cup owned from a king but they wondered how a king would have this cup they then thought maybe it was from the sky. I believe that this cup was from god himself.

This BTN was about the 3 levels of government 1. federal, 2. state and 3. local

1. That Federal has a big responsibility of defending the nation, also managing Australian money, taxes, communications and the environment. State has control of six states and two territories. Also they have another responsibility of taking care of health, education, mining and agriculture.  Also, They watch most of the police and the courts, roads, trains and public transport. And finally local it might not sound like strong things but it has more then 500 local governments and local does local roads, deal with garbage and pets. And they’re in charge of local buildings and permits.

2.Back in the old days of Australia, (states NSW, OLD, VIC, TAS, WA and SA) all the states were their          very own colonies. But in the 1901 the federation of Australia made all the colonies united in the                commonwealth of Australia.

3. The States passed many of their powers because it was too hard alone. Even with state and federal it was still too hard so in the 1970’s they added local government.

1. That in the 1901 how did the State governments find a person to suit federal and local governments?

2. Is that couldn’t they just have all 3 governments already instead of getting federal in 1901 and then another 69 years they add local governments.

My insight is that I now know that State was the very first one to be a government and then federal then local.

100WC- but what if i was in charge?..

I was in school waiting for the teacher I was about to sleep until he banged the door. Other people were throwing paper planes he said he was going to Japan everyone was just saying like “Why are u going to Japan? It’s freezing over in Japan” I did not care about him leaving because my friends and I hated school not even fraction of liking school. He said that he was picking a STUDENT to be an assistant to help the random teacher. Well I did not get pick for assistant, but who cares right? But what if I was in charge?
