It is an interesting point; it does say "election day", but for these people I think it could be held that their election day is when they vote. The questionnaire goes on to say:

If the handing out of how-to-vote cards is banned, should one card from each party, independent, or group be displayed inside each polling booth showing their recommendation of how electors should vote and direct their preferences?

To that question 73 per cent said yes. I think it is obvious that people in Canberra approve of how-to-vote cards. We could debate whether that is a good thing or a bad thing. We could debate why they have that view. I think it is clear that they have that view and, because of that, I will support the amendment favoured by the Government.

Mr Humphries: Thank you. They do not have one.

MR STEVENSON: They do not have one? Okay.
