All you need to do is download the flyer, poster or Facebook tile and insert your project name and description.
Spread the word

- Tell your family and friends. Make sure they get involved and vote!
- Hand out flyers. Let your local community know about your project and how to vote.

How will your project benefit the people in your community?
To make your project appeal to voters, explain how the project will make your area a better place to live or benefit the people who live there.
Examples could be:
- A fenced dog park that will provide a place people can take their pets to play without worrying about them getting hurt or lost.
- An inclusive playground where children of all ages and abilities can play.
- Local sports oval upgrades with new turf, lines and lights to provide better facilities for clubs to play and train during the day and night.
