A Ballina mayoral candidate has raised concerns with the Australian Electoral Commission over apparent discrepancies in postal-vote packs that we sent out to voters unable to attend Saturday’s poll.
Cr Cadwallader, who trails David Wright in the mayoral poll by just nine votes, says that at least some of the packs sent out were missing a mayoral ballot form.
She told ABC radio this morning, ‘There have to be around 300 postal votes [to be counted]. I’m not sure how that’s going to go, though, because I had a number of phone calls from folks that didn’t receive a mayoral voting paper in their postal votes. I think it’s something for the commissioner to take up [and be] dealt with in some way.’
