Have your say on Queensland’s electoral laws

As you may have heard, the Government is canvassing issues and options for improvement and change to Queensland’s electoral laws.  To that end, a discussion paper has been developed to facilitate public input.  The paper is divided into two parts, Part A focuses on options for reform in relation to political donations, public funding for elections and election campaign expenditure.  Part B identifies a range of other issues including the voting system, voter enrolment, postal voting and political advertising.  I am encouraging anyone wishing to have their say on these issues or any matter relevant to Queensland’s electoral system to provide feedback or a submission to assist the Government in deciding it position on electoral reform.  To provide feedback you can email or mail your submission to –
