Election enrolment reminder
Nationals Member for Lowan Emma Kealy has encouraged the region’s residents to check their enrolment details ahead of next month’s state election.
Ms Kealy said it was important for all Victorians to be correctly enrolled on the state roll.
“This will make sure they can have their say and their visit to the voting booth runs smoothly,” she said.
Ms Kealy said it was easy to check enrolment details online at the Victorian Electoral Commission website, www.vec.vic.gov.au, or by telephoning 131 832.
“People enrolling for the first time or who want to update their details will need to contact the Victorian Electoral Commission directly,” she said.
To date, three candidates have announced their intention to contest the seat of Lowan, including Ms Kealy.
“Australia is a democratic country and voters are entitled to have a choice on election day,” Ms Kealy said.
“Our democratic system will not flourish without competition – for ideas, policy and commitments to the electorate ahead of the election such as The Nationals’ commitment to bring back passenger rail to Horsham and Hamilton and to deliver a better deal on country roads through our Country Roads and Bridges Fund.
“I consider it a privilege to represent the people of Lowan and I work hard every day on behalf of my constituents.”
Ms Kealy said she would campaign hard to again earn that privilege.
“Regardless of what happens and who nominates between now and election day, I will be continuing my fight for a better deal for Lowan residents,” she said.
