New senate election for WA

West Australian’s will have to vote again this year after the High Court has officially voided last year’s senate election.

The Australian Electoral Commission rallied to have September’s election void as nearly 1,400 ballots were lost during a recount. 

Now 1.5 million WA voters will have to head back to the ballot boxes to vote for six senators.

The date for the election has not yet been released by the Government.
