THE POSTAL BALLOT SCAM
The State electoral commission, lists it’s official Postal
address as P O Box 666, an interesting address indeed, yet people all over the
state are sending back their official “Ballot papers” to a variety of
addresses, none of which include the official address.
I have made official enquiry’s as to where these reply paid
address actually end up, but if I cannot find out before the election, once the
results are in, there will be nothing we can do, because when I was in the
court of disputed returns in 2010, the chief justice made it clear “The results
of a general election cannot be disputed, regardless of the count or the conduct”
The last state election in 2010, resulted in over 16,500
official postal Ballot papers going missing, so where did they go, how were they
intercepted, and who were the votes for?
On top of these missing ballot papers, more than enough on
their own to have changed the entire outcome of the election, were the 6,500 or
so applications for ballot papers that were deemed dodgy and invalidated by the
electoral commission, why? Who were they from, and why were they excluded?
Legislation changes, were enacted because I exposed these
dodgy issues to a parliamentary enquiry after the 2010 election, the full
results are on my website
New legislation states that Electoral Commission SA must
provide a list of people who have applied for postal votes to political parties
and candidates who request it.
Political parties are permitted to distribute postal vote
application forms. Postal vote application forms must be the same as Electoral
Commission SA's form. Under legislation the forms must be returned directly to
Electoral Commission SA and not to political parties. Has this been upheld or
is it even being monitored?
In 2010 it was also exposed the Labor held a reply paid
address called “Isobel Redmond” and had indeed used this address to intercept
voter information, why did they do this?
What if right now, postal Ballot papers are being
intercepted, considering no one every explained where 16,000 missing ballot
papers I uncovered in 2010 went, could it all be happening again?
I risked my home in 2010 to try and uncover where all the
missing ballot papers went, taking action in the court of disputed returns,
only to find a mired of issues.
How did 77,000 names of regular voters suddenly disappear from
our electoral rolls, how many cases of multiple voting did occur, and why are
we not adopting Identity checks as a result?
I should go one to ask why we still embrace a pencil and a
piece of paper, or why scrutineers are allowed to carry rubbers, or why the
security of the ballots is still a cardboard box, but then I could ask so many
pertinent questions, of which all of them do not interest the main stream media
In 2004 I was also in the courts asking how it was possible that
the electoral commission was allowed to guess the intention of a voter, beyond
what they marked on their ballot paper, a question that resulted in the chief
justice putting the government on notice, but that too was not worthy of media
exposure at the time.
Democracy is all about the election of representatives by
way of the free will of an informed electorate, but just when we will enjoy
this simple ideal, is the biggest question of all.
A vote for me in the upper house is all about transparency,
about the empowerment of the electorate I wish to serve, and by example, I have
proven that I will fight for reforms that will empower those I seek to
How will you vote come march the 15, will your
vote even be counted, will it end up rewarding a candidate you prefer, or will
you turn up to find your name no longer on the electoral roll, therefore having
your precious vote taken from you?
Vote 1 Mark Aldridge groups for the Legislative council (the
upper house) on the large ballot paper in in Box U, because I indeed represent
U, and your best interests.

This is to be my last campaign, if I remain un-elected, I will take that as a resounding, we dont want you as a representative, I sincerely hope who ever comes next, takes a strong interest in democratic reform, because I strongly believe until we embrace honest democracy, we will continue to remain a divided nation on the wrong path.
