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 –

The discussion paper can be viewed in full on the Department website – www.justice.qld.gov.au/corporate/community-consultation.
