2. Electoral Roll Enrolments

Ms Carney to for Chief Minister

QUESTION


1. It was estimated that there were fewer people on the electoral roll for the financial year 2004/2005 than the previous financial year. Given we have just had an election, did that prove to be the case.

2. How many new electors enrolled prior to the last General Election.

1. More electors were enrolled across the Northern Territory at the end of the 04/05 financial year than at the end of the 03/04 financial year.
    Some Legislative Assembly Divisions, however, experienced a decrease in elector enrolment because of the impact of the 2004 Legislative Assembly Redistribution.
    Enrolment figures in respect to all Legislative Assembly Divisions at the end of both financial years (plus the Divisional figures immediately before and following the 2004 Redistribution) are shown in Attachment A.

    Please note that the close of rolls on 7/9/04 for the 2004 Federal Election provided a boost to enrolment figures for all Divisions shortly before the Legislative Assembly Redistribution was put into effect.
2. The Writ for the 2005 Legislative Assembly General Election was issued on 31/5/05 and the roll closed at 08:00 pm on 2/6/05.
    Figures for roll addition transactions for each Legislative Division in respect to the period 31/5/05 to 2/6/05 inclusive are shown in Attachment B.
