Make a submission to JSCEM
The Joint Standing Committee on Electoral Matters (JSCEM), has just announced their Inquiry into the 2022 federal election, and they are seeking submissions.
This is an essential opportunity for us to speak up to level the playing when it comes to elections. Right now, no limits apply to spending on elections by political parties and campaigners. This means those with the deepest pockets can control what narrative voters hear.
A cap on election spending would create a fairer national conversation where the best ideas are able to rise to the top, not the biggest bank balance.
Making a submission is an effective way to ensure election spending caps are on the new government’s reform agenda.
Everyone is invited to make a submission – you don’t need to be an expert! Submissions can contain facts, opinions, and recommendations for action, and there’s no requirement that they come in any particular format. Your submission does not have to be long – a few sentences are sufficient. Submissions close October 7, 2022.
