Principal Petitioner:

Total Signatures - 21

Sponsoring Member: Mike Horan MP

Posting Date: 18/05/2010

Tabled Date: 18/05/2010

Responded By: Hon Cameron Dick MP on 21/06/2010

TO: The Honourable the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of Queensland

The petition of citizens of Queensland draws to the attention of the House that voters continue to vote more than once at State Elections.


Your petitioners therefore request the House to provide the necessary funding and recommendation to the Queensland Electoral Commission to implement an Identification Electronic Voting System at polling booths, commencing at the next State election.  The Identification Electronic Voting System will require each voter to provide proof of identity when they present at a polling booth and their name would then be marked electronically as having voted, ensuring that voter cannot cast any further votes.
