Queensland Votes 2015

The outcome of the 2015 Queensland election will shape the character and values of our state for the next three years.

Queensland is a great state and we want to see it become even better.

We can use this election to vote for a more just and compassionate society.

Through the campaign QLDVotes.org.au will bring you important information about local events, party policies as well as links to other useful election resources.

Please continue to pray for our state and for the election.

God bless

Wendy Francis

Queensland Director
