Scrap mandatory preferential vote?
Senior Liberals believe changes to the electoral system would make the voting process more democratic.
Some are pushing for voluntary preferential voting, meaning people would only need put a "one" next to the candidate they want, and not have to preference others they don't support.
It's believed such a move would disadvantage Labor and the Greens more than the Liberal Party.
Adults would still be compelled to vote, but they would not have to number the ballot and give preferences to candidates they may not support.
Currently voters have to to put a number next to every candidate to lodge a valid vote.
The Opposition's Bronwyn Bishop tells John Stanley the changes would simply reduce the number of informal votes.

Doctors are condemning a book promoting the potentially disease Measles as "marvelous". AMA's Steve Hambleton condemned the book and points out people need more information about the disease.
George St will be dug up during the next state election campaign to build two new light rail lines. Transport Minister Gladys Berejiklian says they'll be making sure there is as little disruption as possible.
That idea doesn't do anything in regards to fairness. Getting rid of the ability to give their votes to another party, & getting rid of coalitions entirely. That means that they have to earn all their votes themselves, & meaningless parties like the Nationals, Greens & Independants won't get the ridiculous hamstringing power like they have now. At the moment I can vote for someone, but my vote is given to some party I despise. How is that Democracy?Coasty Friday 11 January, 2013 - 9:01 AM
I support the srapping of mandatory preferential voting. Continuing this archaic process will only see the useless sods in the labor party and the slime greens party getting re-elected and so the abject waste and nonsense will continue. Bring on the change please!Jonathon L Benson Friday 11 January, 2013 - 8:21 AM
