I move:

That the Senate—
notes that:
Enrol to Vote Week 2010 will run from 17 May to 23 May 2010 with the theme ‘You never know when an election might be called!’, and
in 2007 only 17 208 Australians enrolled or updated their details by 8 pm on the day election writs were issued compared to 423 975 in the old 7 day period in 2004; and
recognises the empowerment of young people to the democratic process.

Question agreed to.
