USE YOUR VOTE. SAY NO TO A HOBART CABLE CAR ON KUNANYI / MT WELLINGTON.
By voting in the 2018 Hobart City Council Election this October you’re influencing Hobart’s future – including the private development of a Hobart Cable Car on kunanyi / Mt Wellington. It’s your city, so vote for the representative(s) you consider to have Hobart’s best interests at heart and those that care about the future of kunanyi. The Hobart City Council elections are non-compulsory and administered via postal ballot.
HOW TO VOTE:
Every elector receives their very own postal ballot pack at their enrolled postal address. You then have 3 weeks to complete and get your vote back to the returning officer for your council. The polling period for the 2018 council elections kicks off from the 8th October, and you’re best off having you vote posted in by Tuesday 23 October 2018 (although technically you have until before 10am Tuesday 30 October 2018).
You must number a minimum of 12 boxes for your vote to be valid. Conveniently, there are 12 candidates who have expressed their support for the mountain and the existing prohibition of HCC land for a cable car.
Who to VOte for:
Unfortunately due to advertising budget allocations we can’t tell you who to vote for in the election. We can’t even give you a list of pro-mountain candidates. We can however tell you that there’s plenty of pro-mountain candidates on the ticket and they’ll be making their position very clear through their own channels. Your ballot info pack will also be a great resource for identifying candidates who care about the future of kunanyi / Mt Wellington.
Don’t be afraid of doing a little research. The stakes are high.
YOUR POSTAL BALLOT PACK CONTAINS:
- ballot papers;
- a booklet containing candidate statements and voting instructions;
- a ballot paper envelope; and
- a reply paid envelope for returning your ballot paper envelope which contains your completed ballot paper (voting won’t even cost a stamp).
Don’t miss the boat to post your vote. Get it in before 30th of October. Post by Tuesday the 23rd of October to be safe.
