Terms of Reference:The Community Development and Justice Standing Committee will inquire into and report on the Western Australian Electoral Commission’s administration and management of the 2017 State General Election. In particular, the Committee will assess the adequacy of the Commission’s procedures in relation to:

Ballot security, including paper ballots and electronic ballots;

The participation of communities with traditionally low levels of enrolment or turn out, and/or high levels of informality;

Remote polling services; and

The operation of polling places, including early voting centres, campaign advertising and the distribution of campaign material.

In doing so, the Committee will consider the responsiveness of the Electoral Act 1907 to the electoral needs of Western Australia.
