The Democracy Sausage is real. However, I’d like to raise a few points:

  • The headline is misleading, Australians do not receive a sausage for voting.
  • I’ve never heard of onions costing extra.
  • It’s pretty unusual for the sausages to be given away for free (I’ve not seen it).

Polling stations are just perfect places for fundraisers, such as sausage sizzles or bake sales.
