Consultation document

On 13 September, the panel released a consultation document and invited submissions on it. It outlines our current electoral law and practice and is split into four parts to make it easier to navigate..

This stage of consultation is now closed. The Panel is now considering what it has heard and developing recommendations on what could change. In May of next year, the Panel will release its draft recommendations and invite feedback from you.
