Mayoral Candidate Tries to Suppress Non-Existent Student Vote

Voting for the upcoming Local Body Elections will no longer be allowed on campus, following complaints to the Electoral Office.

The City Council Electoral office has confirmed that there will be no voting drop off boxes provided at the University. However a special voting facility will be available on Wednesday 25 September from 9.30am to 3pm.

Though the Electoral Office is refusing to release details of the complaints, Salient understands that mayoral candidate John Morrison is one of the complainants.

In a statement released to Salient, Morrison has said that his “issue is about providing the same opportunities equally to all sectors of our community” but that he “[doesn’t] have a problem with this process.”

VUWSA will be challenging the decision.

More details to come.
