ACL election resources
ACL provides a number of resources to help you make your vote count in the Election.
||Make Your Vote for Values Count: Part 1 - How to use the preferential voting system in the Legislative Assemby
This clip explains how Christians can maximise their Legislative Assemby preferences to ensure candidates who support Christian values are favoured. It shows how there is no wasted vote.
||Make Your Vote for Values Count: Part 2 - Legislative Council voting: above or below the line?
This clip explains the difference between voting above and below the line on the complex Senate ballot paper (similar principles apply to the WA Legislative Council ballot paper). ACL encourages Christians to take the simplest approach and vote above the line for the party they think best reflects Christian values unless they feel absolutely confident about numbering all the boxes, mistake free, below the line on a Senate ballot paper.
Please note that the WA Upper house (Legislative Council) ballot paper is vertical, which means that voting is to the left or to the right of the line. The left side of the ballot paper is the same as 'above the line' and the right side of the ballot paper is the same as 'below the line' as mentioned in this clip.
