Make your vote count this federal election Saturday 2 July
At this year’s federal election, the way you vote for the
Senate has changed and it’s important that you understand
how to vote correctly.
On the large white Senate ballot paper, you can choose
to vote either above or below the line.
If you choose to vote above the line, you now need to number
at least 6 boxes. Put the number ‘1’ in the box for the party
or group that is your first choice, a ‘2’ for your second
choice and so on until you’ve numbered at least 6 boxes.
If you choose to vote below the line, you need to number
at least 12 boxes, from 1 to 12, for individual candidates
in the order of your choice.
Voting for the House of Representatives has not changed.
On the green ballot paper, you need to number every box,
starting with the number ‘1’ for your first choice, ‘2’ for your
second choice and so on until you have numbered every box.
‘How to vote’ instructions will be clearly displayed on your
ballot paper. Don’t worry if you make a mistake — just ask
for another ballot paper.
Your vote will help shape Australia.

COMMUNITY. PROSPERITY. TERRITORY.
TERRITORIANS were entitled to
trust the CLP supporting Territory
jobs, strategic public assets not
sold and investment in education,
health and housing honored.
Its clear confidence is lost with Borroloola
experiencing another betrayal of trust when
Chief Minister Adam Giles scrapped their
Commonwealth funded Indigenous hous-
Mr Giles announced the final $350 million
national partnership for remote housing
disregarding Borroloola’s programed 25
new houses and 75 refurbishments denying
equity across regions.
The CLP has broken every element of
their signed contract with Borroloola not
delivering a retail precinct, recreational
facility, cultural centre, land release and
school boarding facility in the Gulf Region.
A CLP candidate for Barkly in 2016
inherits a discredited Borroloola contract
in addition to Mr Giles complete disregard
for national partnership funding of 25 new
houses and 75 refurbishments!
Terry Mills clearly stated if the CLP did
not deliver on their promises electors should
throw them out albeit bitterly betrayed by

Unlike the CLP, Labor will strategically
invest in remote housing for Indigenous
communities allocating Northern Territory
infrastructure funds to leverage local jobs
and further Commonwealth and private
Labor will bring forward $20 million
per year for the Room to Breathe program
building additional outdoor living areas,
verandas, granny flats and additional rooms
onto existing community housing.
Labor’s long-term investment in remote
housing will total $1.1 billion over 10 years
the most significant commitment by any
Territory Government creating local jobs
and reducing the cycle of poverty inter-
twined with poor housing.
The CLP talked big on housing but failed
to deliver in regional and remote com-
munities under the national partnership
agreement choosing to also ignore Tennant
Creek in the final $350 million spend of a
Federal Labor-funded program.
Tennant Creek presents ‘shovel ready’
serviced lots across five community liv-
ing areas for Indigenous housing while
Mr Giles throws Commonwealth housing
dollars into communities with no planning,
lacking serviced land.
The Territory needs a first minister and
government who understands the regions
demonstrating fiscal equity and candour not
discredited promises and ignorance.
