Check de­tails

Benalla Ensign - - VICTORIAN STATE ELECTION 2018 -

State Mem­ber for Euroa Steph Ryan is en­cour­ag­ing Benalla res­i­dents to check their en­rol­ment de­tails, with Vic­to­ri­ans head­ing to the polls on Satur­day, Novem­ber 24.

“The election is just four weeks away and peo­ple must be cor­rectly en­rolled by 8 pmon Tues­day, Novem­ber 6,’’ Ms Ryan said.

‘‘It is im­por­tant for all Vic­to­ri­ans to be cor­rectly en­rolled on the state elec­toral roll, so they can have their say on polling day.

‘‘It’s quite easy to check your en­rol­ment de­tails on­line at the Vic­to­rian Elec­toral Com­mis­sion web­site www.vec.vic.gov.au or by phon­ing 131 832.

‘‘Forms to en­rol or up­date en­rol­ment de­tails are avail­able from my of­fice at 25 Bridge St Benalla, or by phon­ing (03) 5762 1600.’’

To date, three can­di­dates have an­nounced their in­ten­tion to con­test the seat of Euroa, in­clud­ing Ms Ryan.

‘‘Aus­tralia is a demo­cratic coun­try and vot­ers de­serve a choice on election day,’’ Ms Ryan said.

‘‘Our demo­cratic sys­tem won’t flour­ish with­out com­pe­ti­tion — for ideas, pol­icy and a vi­sion for our region.

‘‘That’s why I’ve worked hard to se­cure the Na­tion­als’ com­mit­ment to buy new trains and to de­liver a bet­ter deal by in­ject­ing an ex­tra $12 mil­lion into coun­cil roads in our elec­torate.

‘‘I con­sider it a priv­i­lege to rep­re­sent the best part of Vic­to­ria and I will be work­ing very hard to earn that priv­i­lege again.’’
