    Any idea what the “changes in electoral law” might be Kieran? Another shift of the goal posts to keep local councils in tow I suppose. Let me guess, no candidate preferences allowed to be stated in the VEC handbook that comes out with the ballot papers?

  2. I don’t know. I did find this reference on the Department of Planning and Community Development website about the upcoming elections:

    A number of councils will have changes to their electoral structures for these elections, having undergone independent electoral representation reviews or subdivision reviews in 2007 and 2008. Changes may include altered internal ward boundaries and numbers, or increases or decreases in councillor numbers.
