Draft SOLGM Submission – Justice and Electoral Inquiry into Local Elections

The Justice and Electoral Committee has called for submissions on its inquiry into the 2016 local elections.

SOLGM’s Democracy and Governance Support Working Party and its associated Electoral Subcommittee have taken note of the lengthy submission period and have decided to take advantage of this to think through some of the practical and technical issues involved with some proposals such as access to the unpublished roll. We are making an initial submission to highlight some items that we consider should be in place before the 2019 elections.

The proposals in this submission are open for your feedback until 2 May. More information is available here.
