Numerous major media outlets are running a poll today asking whether you will vote for a party that endorses the internet filter. Vote now!
In something of a first for major media outlets, we're conducting an experiment -- running the same poll (literally the same one, hosted on polldaddy.com) on numerous outlets. It's on major newspaper websites as well as on APC and other local tech sites -- and we want to know how you plan to vote on election day.
Note, we're not asking you to tell us whether you vote Labor, Liberal, Green, Family First or the Australian Sex Party -- we just want to know whether you would vote for any political party that endorsed compulsory internet filtering of Australians' internet connections.
The site that's hosting the poll, PollDaddy.com, doesn't allow you to vote for a poll more than once -- even if you go to other websites to vote on it. (Obviously this can be bypassed if you actively try to do so, but unless you deliberately try to subvert the system, it does have protection against double-voting.)
Naturally, this poll isn't designed to show a scientific representation of anything -- it's a self-selecting audience rather than a random sample, but it will, nonetheless, send a message to politicans if they see many thousands of people saying they will, or will not, vote for a party that endorses compulsory internet filtering.
So vote now, and explain why you voted how you did in the comments below.
