Elec­tion en­rol­ment re­minder

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

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.
