How to Vote:
most democratic way to vote is below the line.
There are 10 councillors
in Byron Shire council. so you need to number at least10 squares or candidates.
suggest at least 20 or else the whole lot.
you vote above the line
it is very important to realise that the system has changed and that you
can no longer put one in the square of your favourite party and expect
that they will all be distributed according to the party's wishes.
It is vital that if you vote above the line you allocate preferences too,
otherwise your vote will run out of counting ie. it will exhaust.
You must put 1 in the box of your favourite group or party and then 2
for your 2nd favourite group/party after that etc. At least preference
any groups or parties that are somewhat aligned to your political stance.
CAN Community action network and possibly the Echo will be assisting in
educating voters about this new system of above the line preferencing.
