The resignations of Kevin Rudd from the federal electorate of Griffith and of Scott Driscoll from the Queensland state electorate of Redcliffe mean that some people in Brisbane will soon have the opportunity to write the REDUCE IMMIGRATION slogan on their by-election ballot papers.
The Brisbane Times suggests that both by-elections could be held on 1 February 2014, although this date is yet to be confirmed.
We encourage everyone involved in these forthcoming contests to promote the REDUCE IMMIGRATION write-on campaign. Involvement is easy – see the simple instructions on our “How to” web-page.
We also note that the Australian Electoral Commission confirmed in September 2013 that writing slogans in the blank sections of ballot papers does not invalidate a vote.
