Some good news...

Originally shared by Alicia Smith

Today, in Australia, the Joint Standing Committee on Electoral Matters reported to the Parliament with its recommendations. As well as agreeing that we must proceed with the proposed reform to make Senate voting ‘above the line’ more democratic, the committee  also called for ‘below the line preferential voting’ reform.

On March 2 the government agreed to support this reform.

While http://belowtheline.org.au/ has been extremely helpful in assisting those of us who really want to know where our vote's going,  this is going to appeal to the other 97% who find the below the line tablecloth ballot paper too much. 12 boxes aren't so much.
