Election promises designed to help the ailing Great Barrier Reef will not be enough, environmental groups say, with both major parties failing to adequately address climate change.

In an era when access to information has never been greater it seems that large sections of the electorate are politically ignorant.

Is this disinterest an extension of individual stupidity and laziness? Or is an apathetic response to politics an entirely rational one?

Ilya Somin explains why political ignorance is a problem for democracies and how might it be mitigated.

+australka25 governments have become irrelevant and now exert their power to keep control over us. The first step is to stop continuing a system that is corrupt, perverted and is not working. Don't vote for anyone! Voting assumes you accept the system. Perhaps if most of us stop supporting the system by voting, people would start to take notice of how broken the system is.
We need a Govexit - an exit from government.

A number of women have contacted the ABC to say Liberal Party election campaign material sent to their home addresses has changed their surnames to match the man they live with.

Some of the women were married, some were not - all said they had never been registered anywhere under that name.

That is a computer program that does that. Something similar happened to me back when I shared a PO box with someone. We were both RAC members (RAC in WA is the same as the NRMA, RACQ, RACV etc in other states) and shortly after instead of 2 magazines arriving there was only 1 that was addressed to both of us.

Anyway this is hardly an election issue but I suppose the left seem to love making mountains out of molehills.

After Australia's longest election campaign in half a century, we're down to the final days.

What are the key policies the major parties have pledged over the past seven weeks?

"I can say hand on heart that I've got every child out of detention, I've brought record numbers of refugees in by plane, nobody has drowned at sea under Operation Sovereign Borders," Peter Dutton told ABC Radio.

Do his claims stand up?

See, Warwick doesn't actually see any of the personal attacks he makes on other people as personal. He denies he ever attacks anyone personally. And then he keeps on picking at them for "not answering his questions" and calling them "leftards" and so on.

For some reason he still thinks he should be treated seriously. I can't figure that out.

Nearly 5 million Australians rent their homes.

As the linear path to owning property no longer exists, more Australians are likely to rent into their old age as housing affordability and full time jobs decline. In our cities, renters outnumber home-owners.

But is there still a social stigma for long-term renters in Australia?

ABC RN Life Matters | http://ab.co/29ijaLI
Nearly five million Australians rent their homes. And unlike in previous generations, many will rent for life. How does Australia's culture for tenants stack up compared to other countries?

Hoax event, or false flag... Which is Sandy Hook?

For that matter, would you claim that every shooting event in the USA was some sort of conspiracy? Pulse nightclub? Aurora cinema? The planned parenthood event from a couple of months ago?

There are about 4,000 women in Brisbane homeless on any given night, says one expert, and only 46 beds available to them in shelters, compared to 200 beds for men.

Helena Menih spent 10 months on the streets of Brisbane talking to homeless women about their experiences, and found that domestic violence is a common thread.
