The senate vote has been counted in Tasmania.
And Australia is worse off by 141 votes.
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.
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.
