Provide on-site polling facilities on the Barrow Island and Wheatstone projects for the upcoming WA state election on 11 March 2016 and all future elections.
Why is this important?
The rosters for the 15,000 workers on these projects mean that early voting and postal voting options are inadequate and severely limit the ability to exercise democratic rights to vote. In many cases voting is impossible.
We believe the WAEC must fulfil its mandate to maximise voter participation and enable us to exercise our democratic right to cast our vote in the same way that other members of the community can. We therefore call on the WAEC to provide voting booths on Barrow Island (Gorgon) and the Wheatstone Project workers’ camps as an urgent priority for the WA election.
