Queensland election

Voters go to the polls today in the Queensland election. The contest will be between 453 candidates in 93 electorates.  Full preferential voting has been re-introduced for the first time since 1992, meaning that voters will have to direct a preference for all candidates other than their first preference choice.  The flow of preferences from minor parties like the Greens, One Nation and Australian Conservatives may be crucial in determining the winner in many seats.

    I totally Agree! Voting in Australia by paper is in my opinion is out dated, it’s time that the Australian Government Electorate is Updated to a Secure Identification Online Voting System.

    I went to vote on 18 May 2019 no ID was asked.

    WE need to change the system if we are to have just one vote for one Party, in the UK the DUP received a total of just over 200.000 votes they won 10 seats, and control the government, two other Party’s received almost 4.000.000 votes each they won 1 seat, that’s the same as having a cricket match where 1 team has 11 players and the other team 168 players . in India the PM s Party received 200.000.000 votes said to be a landslide win, yet 700.000.000 did not vote for him, that’s how the one voting system works, the minority always win, and that is why there is so much corruption in politics,
