419 venues registered for Make it Count

Prime Minister Kevin Rudd and Opposition Leader Tony Abbott will tonight address Christians gathering in 418 churches in Australia and a venue in New Zealand through the Australian Christian Lobby's Make It Count webcast.

About 200 church leaders will meet with the two political leaders in Old Parliament House for the live broadcasts at 7pm on the east coat, 6.30pm in South Australia and Northern Territory and a delayed telecast at 7.30pm in Western Australia.

Christian denominational heads will also get one on one time with both the Prime Minister and Mr Rudd during this afternoon before preparing to question them as part of the webcast.

Apart from a prepared speech from both party leaders, church leaders will ask carefully managed questions to cover a range of topics and both leaders will receive the same questions, to avoid any suggestion of bias.

ACL are hoping for a strong attendance at all webcast venues and will use collate numbers as a sign of the strength of the Christian vote. To find a venue near you, click here.

Australian Christian Voter will give an independent report on the webcast tomorrow, Tuesday, June 22.
