Commonwealth Electoral Amendment Bill 2016; In Committee
It is not a question of disagreement. I would like your advice on a specific matter. Is it a crime to recommend to vote 1 above the line—that is, to cast a formal vote above the line? Is that actually illegal? I want an answer. I do not want smart alec remarks from people who are trying to bamboozle folks in this chamber with a load of rubbish like we have just heard. I want a straight answer to a straight question.
