WHAT do you do with your vote, and why is it important?
The single most important legacy of the Eureka Stockade is that all Australians have a say in the democratic process.
Now, to mark the rebellion's 160th anniversary, we're asking you to explain #whyivote.
To take part, just write a brief caption on our #whyivote template (PDF) or scribble it on a piece of paper and post a photo of yourself to social media.
We'll be collecting the responses from readers and political leaders alike and publishing them at thecourier.com.au ahead of the Victorian election on November 29.
