Media release NT Electoral Commission NT Electoral Commission Level 3, TCG Centre 80 Mitchell Street, Darwin NT 0800 Page 3 Recommendation 7 - Strategic partnerships The commission recommends that partnership agreements with Services Australia and relevant NT Government agencies (e.g. the Departments of Education; Health; Local Government and Community Development, Territory Families, Housing and Communities) are explored for future elections, focusing on engagement and place-based approaches to delivering remote voting services. Recommendation 8 Ability to extend the 100m prohibition zone The commission recommends that for election day voting centres where there is not an existing gazetted boundary, the Electoral Commissioner has the ability to extend the 100 metre prohibition zone boundary where it is deemed practical to do so. Recommendation 9 Abolish designated campaign areas on election day The commission recommends abolishing designated campaign areas and instead mandating the placement of a table (or similar display structure) at the entrance of all election day voting centres where candidates can display information about themselves or how-to-vote materials in a structured way. Candidates and campaign workers would only be permitted to enter the prohibition zone to re-stock the materials as required but not engage with electors while there. Recommendation 10 New election management system for 2024 Territory Election The commission recommends that the administration of electoral events should be migrated to a new bespoke election management system built on a contemporary platform, well before the 2024 Territory Election.
