Dear Members,

Hereunder is my report on matters to be considered at the above Meeting:-


01.01 MAYORAL FEE


HURSTVILLE CITY COUNCIL
REPORT ITEM NO: .
GENERAL MANAGER'S


01.02 ELECTION OF MAYOR




(2) Despite subclause (1), a ballot-paper of an elector at an Election in which only one candidate is to be elected from 2 candidates is not informal merely because a tick or a cross has been placed in one square and the other square has been left blank. In such a case the tick or the cross is to be treated as a first preference.

(3) Despite Subclause (1), a ballot paper of an elector at an election is not informal merely because a preference (other than a first preference) has been repeated or omitted so long as the ballot paper shows the minimum number of preferences required by the directions.
