Senate recount needed in Tasmania

The senate vote has been counted in Tasmania.

And Australia is worse off by 141 votes.

PH or SHY

In the final count, the Greens finished ahead of Pauline Hanson’s One Nation by the slimmest of margins. A recount is needed and I certainly hope that Pauline Hanson will request one.

A large number of votes in Tasmania were excluded and an additionally large number ‘exhausted’, the vast majority of which came as ‘conservative’ candidates were excluded. In fact, well over 80% of ‘exhausted’ votes came when candidates from the Liberal party, Family First and Shooters, Fishers and Farmers Party were excluded. Furthermore, many of the votes included in the count were either marked both above and below ‘the line’, contained non-numerical markings, or duplicate or missing numbers, as shown below.

Votes

Many votes included in the Tasmanian Senate count contained anomalies. They may be legal, but a recount is warranted.

Hundreds of votes that favoured the Greens have legitimate questions about their validity.

Savings provisions do exist to ensure that votes are not unfairly removed from the count. However, given the closeness of the final result and legitimate questions about the validity or otherwise of votes included or excluded from the count, a recount is warranted. This will help to ensure public confidence in the integrity of the electoral process and our democracy.

The Electoral Act provides for a recount in such circumstances.

Therefore, I am asking you to support my campaign for a recount. Please, sign the petition below asking the Australian Electoral Commission to do just that.

By doing so, you will not only be assisting to safeguard public confidence in our democracy, but if a recount changes the result, it will benefit all Australians by replacing a Greens Senator with a conservative representative from One Nation.

The Greens are anti-marriage and want to stop Australians having any say on this issue.

The Greens are economic vandals and oppose all measures to restore budgetary integrity.

The Greens want to impose additional taxes and waste billions trying to control the level of the ocean.

And the Greens want to protect Islam and bring hundreds of thousands of Islamic refugees to Australia.

On top of this, the Greens were not supported by Australians. Their primary vote fell and even most Labor voters in Tasmania ignored their own party’s how to vote cards directing them to preference the Greens second. Instead, they supported candidates from parties like the Australian Liberty Alliance, Family First, One Nation and even the Liberals.

So this is a call to action for all conservatives, whether you support the Liberals, the Nationals, ALA, Family First, One Nation, Rise Up or other parties like the Christian Democrats, Australian Christians, DLP or Liberal Democrats.

If you join this campaign, it may completely change the direction of our nation over the next three years, removing a dangerous Green and properly electing a truly conservative Australian senator. With such tight numbers in parliament, it is important to ensure that every vote is counted accurately.

Recount the Tasmanian Senate results

Dear Sir,

I request a recount of the Tasmanian Senate vote.

A large number of votes in Tasmania were excluded and an additionally large number exhausted, the vast majority of which came as 'conservative' candidates were excluded. Furthermore, many of the votes included in the count were either marked both above and below 'the line', contained non-numerical markings, or duplicate or missing numbers.

I understand that savings provisions do exist to ensure that votes are not unfairly removed from the count. However, given the closeness of the final result and legitimate questions about the validity or otherwise of votes included or excluded from the count, a recount is warranted. This will help to ensure public confidence in the integrity of the electoral process and our democracy.

I understand that the AEC and its officers have worked diligently during the electoral period and this request should not be seen in any way as a criticism of the AEC.

Kind regards,

  2. People should take their votes more seriously, it’s the future of the nation at stake. And in fairness if it’s in dispute, no matter what party it should be recounted or redone. Maybe if people filled them in properly instead of voting for Mackey mouse or filling the,min incorrectly our nation would be going places instead of going down hill.

  3. Corruption in Australian politics is rife. Testament to my comment is the fact that ALA were purposely excluded from any form of media what so ever. It was a blatant ploy to stop public knowledge of it and to minimise support for it, just as they manipulated the perception of One Nation with their lies, innuendo and edited, selective comments. Free, responsible and unbiased journalism is a myth. A recount is definitely needed as we know that both major parties would rather a Green candidate to a One Nation to win a seat.

  4. Mate if you have proof of voter fraud, and I don’t doubt it, then you need to submit a complaint to the court of disputed returns and formally call for a recount, a petition is pointless, the AEC is not obliged to take note of it, Don’t write about it, go to court over it.

Well how else would one describe it..If you are in the big know at the big endz of town you’ll know precisely what I mean won’t you?

  6. thank you very much for bringing this to our attention. I cannot understand why “dubious” votes were not excluded, and why a recount is not automatically done in these circumstances.

  7. I believe a recount ensuring that the genuine voting intentions of the people can be guaranteed is essential in such a close result! Mistakes in the initial count may have affected the outcome and the only way to ensure accuracy is to recount with an open mind!

  8. Bernie, would you be as concerned if the allegedly questionable votes favoured One Nation?

    • There are legitimate questions. They should be checked, regardless of who the votes seem to support.

    • Michael!

      “One Nation” is not trying to destroy our economy and our culture – the “Greens” are attempting to do just that.

    • There’s no “allegedly” about it, unless you believe the AEC issues false information…
