I got the following off a website created by a Barrister.

Freedom of communication relating to the affairs of governments: voting methods

"In an election for the House of Representatives voters are directed to express a preference for each candidate. Parliament made it an offence to publish matter which encouraged voters in a Federal election to vote otherwise than by this "full preferential" method. The offence applied even though the other method promoted would produce a valid vote. The Court held that the offence did not infringe the implied guarantee of free political discourse: Langer v Commonwealth (1996) 186 CLR 140."

denial of democracy

Cobber rants; Even though there are other legal ways of filling out the voting card, it is illegal to advertise any method of voting except the full preferential method because this method returns this mob back into government.

If it is legal to vote these ways, it should NOT be illegal to inform voters of the legal methods of doing so.

Was there a naughty reply? I saw that there was one response but nothing in the thread.
