Enquiry into Preferential Voting

Dear Prime Minister and Premiers, many voters feel disenfranchised when the candidate who receives their first preference vote and gets the most primary votes, loses because preferences from other candidates results in a candidate winning who had a lower primary vote.

Please conduct an enquiry into preferential voting to determine whether it is fair and whether an alternative system may be more equitable to voters.

    We need this before the next election.

    Preferential voting is past its use by now. Time to look at an alternative which the major parties are unable to manipulate our votes

    Abolish preferential voting and bring in the candidate with the most votes wins ( first past the post )

    Your vote is for who you voted for only this vote should not go to any other candidates if the person doesn’t get enough votes.

    Preferential voting takes away the voters right to choose because of backroom deals.
