Don’t have a Preference…

2nd May 2019. Our Senate Election system is so complex that even our Electoral Commission can’t explain it. For the locals here goes: You have to number at least 6 boxes if you vote for a party or 12 boxes if you vote for an individual.If you do this however you are not saying who you do NOT want to vote for and the distribution of other peoples preferences may in fact elect that person with your help.

To prevent the above you must exhaust all your preferences ie number every box either for a party ( above the line) or an individual (‘Below the line).
