Australian election write on campaign

For Australian readers:

There is a group which is calling on people to write a reduce immigration message on their ballot papers in the forthcoming elections.

Whilst I don't think this is sufficient to make big changes, it could at least send a message to the party officials who scrutinise the ballot papers.

The website of the group is here.


  1. " could at least send a message to the party officials who scrutinise the ballot papers.

    I've done vote counting for the Liberal's before. I'd say the majority of the Liberal vote counters would agree with the message (probably a fair % from Labor to) such is the disconnect between the political elites and the foot soldiers. Of course how many of the rank and file realise this disconnect is another issue.

    All in all I'm not sure what good this tactic will do.

  2. I've done vote-counting too, and my opinion is the same: the people who see the messages will agree, and the people in power will remain totally disconnected.

    Thanks for passing this on though. It's a chance to do something with my vote, even if futile.

    Choosing between the pro-white-genocide right and the pro-white-genocide left, both sides all for mass immigration and forced integration, was like being forced to mock the idea of democracy. Because not only is there no real choice on the most important topic, but the aim of the not-up-for-debate "elite" consensus is to get rid of the "demos" that democracy should be empowering.

  3. I've worked as a polling clerk, and when I was a party hack I've also spent several elections as a scrutineer. I assure you, none of us cares one whit about the doodles and message written on ballot papers. I say this as someone who is sympathetic to your message. Stop thinking the managerial state is worried about your concerns and fears. They aren't. This is just another exercise in wasting time and distracting people by funneling their energies into meaningless and aimless ephemera.
