The Australian Electoral Commission is encouraging Indigenous voters to participate in the upcoming federal election.
The organisation has developed a number of videos in 12 Indigenous and Torres Strait Islander languages.
The videos aim to support and increase electoral participation especially in remote areas where voting is low.
The AEC's Manager for the Northern Territory, Mr Geoff Bloom, said the videos were created to raise awareness in remote communities about the importance of voting and how to participate.
"The majority of people who vote with our remote mobile polling teams live in the Northern Territory and are part of small Indigenous communities," Mr Bloom said.
"These videos give information on how to enrol, how to vote and also to promote temporary employment opportunities. The videos are translated into 12 Indigenous languages spoken in remote communities across the NT, including Murrinh - Patha, Arrernte, Walpiri and Yolgnu Matha."
Year on year the AEC ensures as many people as possible have access to voting with the delivery of a remote polling service.
There will be 16 remote area mobile polling teams expected to cover 200 locations across the Northern Territory.
The AEC NT will also support six remote polling teams operating in the Kimberley region of Western Australia and two teams in the APY Lands in South Australia.
"The mobile teams consist of three or four team members, and we try to include at least one Indigenous staff member," Mr Bloom said.
"The other really positive aspect of the AEC's remote polling program is that it provides opportunities for Indigenous Australians to work as paid AEC polling officers in their own communities."
The federal election has been called for May 18.
