Declare

Incidentally - it was news to me, when I researched how to cast a valid vote prior to the state election, that you could indicate preferences above the line in the Council election, a reform I'd been in favour of for a while (though I can see why the major parties weren't falling over themselves to publicise the change). Though unexpected, that was not, however, the weirdest feature of the NSW system - this was.

If you go to the candidate lists you can access the pdfs of their declarations that they have never murdered a kiddy. Coz you've got to the draw the line somewhere, right?
