Here at CC Australia, we are always proud to highlight the use of CC in government.

Recently the Australian Electoral Commission (AEC) applied the CC BY 3.0 Australia licence as a default licence for all the material on its website.

The AEC is responsible for conducting federal elections and referendums and maintaining the Commonwealth electoral roll. It also provides a range of electoral information and education programs and activities.

To learn more about democracy, referendums or our Australian electoral process, see the AEC’s classroom resources page and publications page, which has a range of educational resources available under CC BY. There is also a range of translated information for people from non-English speaking backgrounds.

We commend the AEC for making such valuable resources available to the public for reuse.
