  • Seven out of nine National Council positions were filled – more on a by-election soon.
  • Both Dispute Resolution Committee positions were filled.
  • Minutes are here:


By the time you receive this email, you should have already received two others detailing your credential and password for the voting system. (These are not the same thing.)

You will need the credential to access the “voting booth”, and then the password to finalise casting your vote. The link in either email will work to get to the booth.

Earlier tonight we sent another email with a broken link (containing the infamous — please disregard that one.

Details of all five proposals can be found here:

Voting closes at 23:59 (Perth time) on Sunday 7th August.


These ballots are for Full Members of the party only. If you have received this email but not a ballot email, it’s likely that you don’t currently have active party membership. Contact [email protected] if you have questions about membership, or [email protected] if you have questions about the voting process.

Kind Regards,
