It is amazing how powerful a piece of paper can be

The Australian Electoral Commission explains the new rules:

'Voting rules for the Senate have changed; this federal election you will have new ways to decide your preferences on your white Senate ballot paper. You need to either:

  • number at least six boxes above the line for the parties or groups of your choice, or 
  • number at least 12 boxes below the line for individual candidates of your choice.

It is amazing how powerful a piece of paper can be.'
