What preference deals will Rob be making? | Rob Oakeshott | Independent for Cowper


Our system is a compulsory preferential system, requiring all boxes on the ballot box be numbered on election day.


Rob believes that preferences should be the decision of the voter, not the candidate.  So he has never done a “deal” on preferences as an independent candidate, and will not be doing so in this election


He does recognise that preferencing is an important part of the process and for some voters it’s just easier to have a How to Vote card.  Therefore, Rob will be developing a How To Vote card that he believes represents the best interests of our community and our country. This will not be decided until all candidates have nominated and the election has been called.  He will inform the community once it has been finalised.
