ADNSW regularly makes submissions to government regarding discrimination issues. Our latest submission was to the NSW Electoral Commission’s Review into Technology Assisted Voting.
ADNSW is very concerned that, except for telephone voting for electors who are blind or have low vision, Technology Assisted Voting will not be used at the March 2023 NSW State Election. Suspending the use of the iVote electronic voting system creates barriers for people with a disability to participate in the electoral process freely and fairly.
ADNSW welcomes the NSW Electoral Commissioner’s review of options for Technology Assisted Voting in the 2027 State Election and encourages the NSW Electoral Commission to consult closely with disability peak bodies, disability stakeholder groups and people with lived experience of disability.
