WA voters likely to vote again

The High Court looks likely to send West Australian voters back to the polls to vote for Federal Senators, after it ruled today the loss of ballot papers affected the result of the vote in September.

1, 370 votes went missing during a recount last year and the Australian Electoral Commission called for the Court of Disputed Returns to assess the damage of this.

The Court will sit again later this week to determine if the votes should be declared void and whether voters should return to the polls.
