ADVICE TO ELECTORS -- 2 July 2016 Federal Election
The 2016 legislated change in Senate Voting arrangements favours The Greens party.
Voters who want to ensure that their Senate ballot paper does not direct support to The Greens party should fill out all squares on the Senate ballot paper whether voting above the line (ATL) or below the line (BTL).
An ATL vote of only 1 to 6 will leave limited opposition to The Greens party. This will enable The Greens party to accumulate more votes towards an additional Senate seat and greater control of the Senate.
