KEY RESULT AREAS NTEC ANNUAL REPORT 2006-07 PAGE 16 OF 48 2.7.2 Removal of Voting Rights for Prisoners The provisions of the Commonwealth Electoral Act to remove voting rights from prisoners came into effect in mid 2006. Prisoners did not vote at the Stuart byelection. It did not however impact on voter turnout, as the AEC obtained data from the NT Government (Department of Justice) under their new demand powers and took the necessary action to delete the names from the electoral roll for the election. 2.7.3 Demand Powers In late 2006, the AEC made applications to the NT Power and Water Corporation and the Department of Education for name and change of address information for the purposes of roll review, with data supply due to commence by mid to late 2007. Separate application was made to the Motor Vehicle Registry for on-line access to NT license data held on NEVDIS (the national licence data base) for the purpose of an enrolment POI check.
