LETTER: Limited options in two horse race

EVER wondered why preferential voting is compulsory in a Federal Election?

It’sthe way that Labor and Liberal have set it up so that one of them ends up with yourvote even if you don’t want to vote for them.

Aseach person is eliminated in the counting process and the votes given to thenext in line on the ballots, eventually your vote will end up with one of thetwo main parties unless you happen to be in an electorate where an independentor other gets in. How can you stop this happening?

Ifyou are like most people I’ve been talking to who dislike both Labor andLiberal, you need to have a good look at all of the other candidates who willbe standing in your electorate and see what they stand for. Talk with yourfriends and neighbours and see what they think.

Phonethe candidates you like and ask them why you should vote for them. You, thevoting public have the power to change the way your country is run if you decideto use it.

Ihope you would find that Katter’s Australian Party stands for the ideals that youprefer, but I don’t mind if you believe it is an independent or other party aslong as you are voting for the change I know you want.

Wemight not be able to change the world but hopefully together we can change ourCountry!

Bruce Nicholson, KAP Candidate for Hume.
