seems to be on a mission to prove beyond all doubt that he is a lunatic, but his voting strategy suggestion
has got me thinking.
What if the majority of Australians donkey-voted by not ticking or numbering the boxes as required? I believe it is a prosecutable offence (because enrolling to vote and voting when required is compulsory here), but I doubt that every voter would be prosecuted.
What if, say, only one person in each electorate voted correctly? There would be no way to prove which person that was.
So, what would happen? Would the current government continue on? Would the Governor-General be involved? Would another election be called?
(And, no, I am not planning on donkey-voting. It's just one of those things I've started to wonder about, and googling hasn't helped. As I dreamed last night that the entire Australian Capital Territory was consumed by bushfire, I think I need some closure.)
