voting for the senate

    The elections are next Saturday, one of the worst jobs next Saturday is filling out the Senot ballot sheet (more like a table cloth), it's over a metre long.

    NSW has 78 nominations on the ballot.

    There's no problem if you plan to just go for the tick in one of the Party boxes above the line, but if you're like me and have a preferred choice for how your vote in all 78 cases go you would be in the booth for at least half an hour.

    What I've done is downloaded all the NSW Senate candidates from the ABC website,(http://abc.net.au/elections/federal/2004/guide/groupvotingtickets.htm).

    Copyied one of the Group lists to excel then arranged the candidates in my preferred order, printed out my list which I will take to the polling booth next Saturday, just a matter of copying my list to the Senate ballot paper.

    At least I know where each of my votes are going.

    Cheers,
