Your vote to be halved

Your vote to be halved: The government has released its amendments to the Shooters and Fishers Party bill which merely tinker at the edges while maintaining the fundamental assault on the long standing democratic principle of one-vote-one value. Doubling the vote of non-residential voters flies in the face of fairness and ignores the advice given to the Victorian Liberal Government, the unanimous view of the board of Local Government NSW, and the NSW Legislative review panel.

Rather then respecting the vote and wishes of Sydney's residents and businesses, the Baird Government is set to adopt a scheme that will double the vote of people who do not live in the local government area based on how much land they own. 

I strongly urge you to urgently contact Premier Mike Baird and tell him to withdraw his support for this undemocratic Bill.
