HOW TO VOTE
Between dozens of candidates, backroom preference deals and an enormous ballot paper, voting for the Senate can be confusing. That’s why the crucial thing to remember if you want to see me in the Federal Senate is to look for column ‘R’.
HETTY HAS DRAWN COLUMN ‘R‘ on the white ballot paper. You can choose to vote in one of two ways, firstly above the line or secondly below the line.
- EITHER – Above the line: Find column R, place a number 1in the blank box (no names) ABOVE the line, then number at least 5 more parties of your choice (minimum 6 in total).
- OR – Below the line: Find column R, place a number 1in the box BELOW the line next to Hetty Johnston. Place a number 2in the box next to Sue Mureau then number at least 10 more names below the line (minimum 12 in total).
You will have to assign numbers to multiple candidates but gifting me your number 1 vote is the sure-fire way to help me hold our politicians to account. Six Queenslanders will be elected to the Senate this year and, if I am fortunate enough to be one of them, I guarantee no parties or other candidates will be telling me what to say or do once there.
