Commonwealth Electoral Amendment Bill 2016; In Committee
For a vote to be formal under these changes, there must be six. The minimum is absolutely six. However, the savings provision has allowed a No. 1 vote to become formal. Therefore, proposed section 329, although you said not, would seem to become redundant. I am trying to get some really good clarity around that, because this is a huge blunder if this is actually the case.
