Voter fraud will decide the outcome of the May 21 election
IS AUSTRALIA’S VOTING SYSTEM HONEST?
DO VOTE FRAUDS OCCUR?
GetUp has $30m in the bank and is the largest, organised voting manipulator in Australia
by Lex Stewart, former Chairman of Australians for Honest Elections
To the two questions above in the heading, our Australian Electoral Commission (AEC) would say “Yes and No”.
But my answers are the opposite – based on having scrutineered at every federal and state election since 1985, and having done paid work for six MPs (3 Canberra, 3 NSW) and voluntary work in various political Parties.
I worked as staffer for an MP who lost his seat in 1993 by 164 votes, and then we discovered 300 false enrolments on the Electoral Roll, plus other issues, including that Jehovah’s Witnesses did not receive their customary letter after the election because they did not vote.
A few years ago I arranged some meetings in Australia for UK Election Commissioner Richard Mawrey QC, who had jailed people from both sides of politics for Vote Frauds.
Very few people have ever been prosecuted or even challenged in Australia, and our Australian Electoral Commission (AEC) operates a faulty system with numerous loopholes, and scant attention from Ministers, other MPs and journalists.
Richard Mawrey was aghast at what he saw of Australia’s voting systems and Electoral Agencies. He said, “Due to the incentives, if vote fraud CAN occur due to loopholes, then it WILL occur. And especially Australia’s postal vote system is a recipe for fraud.”
There is substantial incentive for Vote Frauds because the rewards are so huge – power, prestige, getting control of expenditure of taxpayers’ moneys, appointing your mates to various Boards and diplomatic postings etc.
To improve elections:-
- vote in the Senate by numbering every square rather than one to six
- do scrutineering – this means getting an AEC Form signed by a candidate. Do it after 6pm on election night, and if needed during subsequent days of re-counting.
- Because over the years very few MPs have taken an interest in Vote Frauds (except Fred Nile and Pauline Hanson) then after this election heckle your MP that you want Voter ID introduced, so as to prevent Multiple Voting (AEC data show more than 36,686 in the 2016 election) and to prevent Voter Impersonation.
Bearing in mind that it is often difficult to gather enough evidence to prove Vote Frauds (granted that the AEC, Aust Federal Police are asleep), I could give numerous examples of Vote Frauds, but it would make this article too long.
A convenient one-page list of 17 cases of Vote Frauds was page two of a brief Submission by eminent Sydney lawyer James Bell to the parliamentary committee reviewing the 2019 federal election. When his Submission appeared on the parliamentary website as number 53, the list on page two had been “redacted” i.e. blacked out! In order to overcome this censorship, James’s list is presented below.
Some cases of Vote Frauds have been exposed by rare court cases or very rare government inquiries, e.g. the Shepherdson Inquiry, which led to the jailing of Karen Ehrman who said she was only a small bit player among many others involved in the ALP’s schemes.
The AEC has not operated the Electoral Roll with integrity, as shown by the five reports done by the Australian National Audit Office (ANAO).
The Howard government asked the ANAO to do an audit of the AEC, and the report of 18 April 2002 titled “The Integrity of the Electoral Roll” raised serious concerns.
The ANAO report of 6 April 2004:- “progress by the AEC on implementing the recommendations has been slow…”
Their report of 6 April 2010 wrote, “The most significant long-term problem for the AEC remains the poor state of the Electoral Roll”.
Their 8 May 2014 report stated, “… the state of the Roll was the most significant long-term issue … and the AEC’s approaches … have become less effective , as well as … more costly”
Their fifth report on 4 November 2015 had some alarming things to say in its Overall Conclusion:- “The actions taken by the AEC … have not adequately and effectively addressed the matters that led to the ANAO’s recommendations being made … The findings of this audit .. are in contrast to the advice provided by the AEC to the 2014 parliamentary committee that all recommendations … had been completed”
IN OTHER WORDS THE AEC TOLD LIES TO THE PARLIAMENTARY COMMITTEE!
And no Minister or MP or journalist bothered or cared to expose this AEC juggernaut, which is in practical effect unaccountable and renegade, operating a system full of loopholes.
Here is the list of cases of Vote Frauds in James Bell’s Submission to the parliamentary committee. It includes cases where Vote Frauds were PROVEN to have occurred, but James (and I) are not claiming that the frauds were necessarily of sufficient magnitude to have affected the outcome.
- Joan Chambers lost Ballarat South in 1988 by 104 votes, but many more than 104 fraudulent votes were subsequently found by the Electoral Authority
- Bribie Island 1989 -Bob Bottom found underwater enrolments along a beachside street
- Alasdair Webster MP lost Macquarie in 1993 by 164 votes
- 1993 Frank Tanti lost Mundingburra by 16 votes but won the court-ordered by-election
- MP Larry Anthony lost Richmond in 2004 by 301 votes
- Multiple voting in 2005 Werriwa by-election
- Wollondilly in the March 2007 NSW State election – several Statutory Declarations described a busload going to vote at several polling booths, but the Electoral Commissioner refused to investigate
- 200 House of Reps ballot papers vanished in Epping West booth in Bennelong in 2007
- BK photographed a suspicious man who voted three times in Coogee ~2007
- VicB found 500 false enrolments in Kingsford Smith early 2013
- Circa year 2000 BK, VB, PB found many false enrolments in Parramatta, perhaps 5,000
- S Mirabella lost Indi in 2013 by 500 (1,000 ballots appeared)
- 1,370 ballot papers vanished in the WA senate election
- MP Charles Casuscelli narrowly lost Strathfield in 2015 NSW
- MP Chris Holstein narrowly lost Gosford in 2015 NSW
- MP Louise Markus narrowly lost Macquarie in 2016, with Lex Stewart detecting a new method of Vote Fraud, plus observing an old method being used.
- Election 2016: Labor’s Cathy O’Toole wins Herbert by 37 votes …
Editor: It should be noted that this scribe has been writing about electoral fraud since 1987 when the Unions were able to get enough false names onto the roll to change the election result.. The AEC electronic roll was in its infancy and it had the original RAMNS system which was sub-standard at least, allowing many thousands of false names to stay on the roll unchecked. Indeed a staffer for former Senator Len Harris in 2004 was told by the then Electoral Commissioner that there were more than 400,000 names on the roll whose identity had not been checked.
In 1987 the incumbent Australian Labor Party, led by Prime Minister Bob Hawke, defeated the opposition Liberal Party of Australia, led by John Howard and the National Party of Australia led by Ian Sinclair. This was the first, and to date only, time the Labor Party won a third consecutive election.
Postal voting integrity is the biggest worry of the 2022 election.

Electoral Funding and Disclosure Reform bill to get rid of GetUp
Letter to the Editor
GetUp gears up to stop legislation designed to get rid of them. Campaign starts to ensure the ALP opposes it
Great, at last somebody has found some political guts to get rid of GetUp. George Soros, their main financier, will be livid; he has been funding terror campaigns world -wide including the ragtag Marxist GetUp mob in Australia.
George was found contributing towards Hilary’s anti-Trump campaign and Obama’s 30,000 strong mob of mad women and malcontent men trying to usurp the legitimate election of Trump by staging women’s marches consisting the communist, atheist, anti-family horde of dykes, trannies and a few poofter terrorists thrown in.
Then there also is the other mob of anarchists Soros is funding in a direct attempt to overthrow Trump and his far stronger tens of million supporters. GetUp features in similar anti-Christian, anti-social activities across Australia usurping traditional ways of life practiced by the majority of Australians.
Look at what this bunch of anarchists did to Tony Abbott.
It propagates phony global warming and climate change theories when we are actually heading towards an ice age. Getup and the terrorist George Soros in Australia? No thanks!
For the first time I would support Liberal legislation designed to rid Australia of a terrorist organisation.
Gay Greens and GetUp to call the gay marriage shots
from Larry Pickering, the last surviving iconic commentator, journalist and cartoonist
It’s got me stuffed. Australians hardly ever pass changes in the law by ballot. They have on only 8 of 44 occasions, and although this survey is not a referendum, or even a plebiscite, the “survey” if successful, will lead to fully gazetted legislation. So why are 70 per cent of citizens going to vote yes? But is it really 70 per cent? Or is it really about the question the pollster asked?
More likely it is the question, a highly biased question designed to evoke only a “YES” answer: “Do you agree with marriage equality?”
That question will almost always get a “yes”, and the GGGGLL will ride a wave of confidence all the way to where they want it to finish… and where they want it to finish they dare not tell you.
I read the question on the survey paper and it asks if you want the Marriage Act changed to accommodate gay marriage. That is not what will happen if a “yes” vote gets up.
In fact the Marriage Act will be abolished completely and a new gender neutral Act will be drafted by the Gay Greens in the Senate, an Act that will please only the wind chime and bong manufacturers in the inner suburbs of Sydney and Melbourne, Byron Bay and South Australia all over.
Ex PM Howard is right when he says that we need to see the legislation first, http://pickeringpost.com/story/okay-mal-just-show-us-the-bloody-bill-/7542 but people are voting already and what’s to say the Gay Green Senate won’t make amendments we will never know about until they become law?
They will get no resistance from Turnbull as he wants the whole gay crap off the table and forgotten about. And so do we. We have energy prices and the Zika Kid to entertain us… we are sick and tired of listening to moaning gay people and Sky and ABC interviewers agreeing with them.
On another part of the survey sheet I read, “If you make a mistake just ask us to send you another form”. On another part is says the survey is 100 per cent anonymous, no names no addresses, no worries.
What a perfect set up for the devious and well-organised GetUp mob to easily skew the result. They will already have a dozen schemes in place.
The survey sheet is of such poor quality that any Asian printer could run off an undetectable few million. Any number of union-committed postmen could take every letter home or deliver them to GetUp’s hard-working gnomes who distance themselves from Shorten and Wong.
This postal survey seems almost designed to be scammed.
And the cherry on the top is when the Government makes temporary laws (that will of course stay in place) where opponents of this scam can be fined $12,500 with an adjudicator by the name of George Brandis at the helm. He alone will decide if you are guilty of offending the “YES” brigade.
What more do you need to vote “NO”?
Or maybe you believe GetUp is an honest political pressure group? Or Maybe North Korea is a pacifist group? Or banks don’t steal your money?
Maybe you really want these hairy arm-pitted, bare-titted sheilas and bare-arsed loony-tune, radical, pillow biters writing your marriage vows for you. If so, then vote “YES”.
But I don’t believe a “YES” vote will survive. If it does, we are not true-blue Australians. Because true-blue Aussies would never vote yes to something as full of holes and as deviously scammable as this.
A “YES” result could never be relied upon as even remotely accurate.
It’s more likely to be a “NO” result that CAN be relied upon because real Australians would never align themselves with a decadent, illegal mob like the Labor Green’s GetUp.
We are better than that,
Soros and GetUp set to agitate Bernardi
GetUp Australia is billionaire George Soros’ puppet cult. It is one of the most dangerous pressure groups (naïve students and Greens disciples) in Australia today. Canada and Hungary right now are moving to ban all George Soros funded organisations in their countries. Soros backed and funded Hilary Clinton’s disastrous campaign to become US president. Soros has been found by US authorities to fund left-wing violent campaigns against Trump and the powerful firearms lobby.
Soros directly funded demonstrations to disrupt Trump’s inauguration and also contributed towards the ‘womens march’ in the US, attended by hairy armpitted, hairy legged, pseudo-intellectual, chardonnay-sipping left-wing feminists who hate men with a passion.Below is the latest tirade from the Bolsheviks of GetUp:
George Soros funds violent left-wing demonstrations, Hilary Clinton and GetUp Australia
Right-wing Senator Cory Bernardi just announced he’s leaving the Liberals to form his own ‘Australian Conservatives’ Party. Modelling himself on Donald Trump, Bernardi’s agenda is one of hate, climate destruction and increasing inequality. His policies hurt people. And he’s starting off with 50,000 followers and his “very close friend” Gina Rinehart, who joined Bernardi in meetings with Trump’s campaign team in New York.1 Like Trump, we can’t underestimate Bernardi or the damage he can do. We have a community of 1 million members, who proved last election we can take on the far right and win. If there’s any group of committed, passionate people who can counter Bernardi’s Trump-inspired politics of division, it’s us. But to keep countering that far right agenda, we need to fight harder and longer than any election campaign. That means more people joining the GetUp Crew — the team of GetUp supporters who make a regular donation to fund our collective power.
Check out our video about what Bernardi’s move means for Australia — and join the GetUp Crew today.
What will we do? Everything GetUp does best. We’re going to counter and frustrate Bernardi’s mining-backed right-wing agenda with bigger, deeper and more far-reaching campaigns — just like we did to stop Tony Abbott’s extreme agenda. We’ll hit the streets, airwaves and online. And we’ll counter his 50,000 followers with 1 million passionate GetUp members, like we’ve done time and again on the issues that matter. But we won’t stop there. We’ll also work with members to mobilise in their own communities, and get their neighbours and friends involved to organise for lasting, long-term change that combats hate and division with unity. And we’ll drive the political narrative with cutting-edge, media-grabbing policy research that takes back the agenda from Bernardi’s denial of science and fact. All to be backed in by the creative ads and viral videos that reach millions and stand out from the political pack.
GetUP stacks Canning electoral roll with false enrolments
Widespread false enrolments suspected in Canning
· Email by GetUP raises concerns about integrity of Electoral Roll
· 11,005 names added to Roll in 2 years, 4 times faster than national average
· AEC figures point to false enrolments and other Roll abuse as likely
Elections-monitoring group, Australians for Honest Elections (AFHE), is questioning the integrity of the Electoral Roll to be used for the Canning ByElection in the light of an email sent out by activist group GetUP to its supporters on 27 August:
“Here is our chance. A few hundred votes could tip the balance, and that’s when our movement is at its most powerful. But we need to act fast. We’re armed … [to] shift these key votes”.
“What key votes?” asks AFHE President Mr Lex Stewart. “Just what do they intend to do?”
According to AEC figures, the electoral roll for Canning gained 11,005 new names in two years, a 10.8 percent increase, compared to the national average growth rate of 1.37 percent per annum.
The Roll for Canning now contains 112,809 names, up from 101,804 names in the 2013 election.
“Where did all those extra names came from and how recently?” Mr Stewart asked.
Author and elections expert Dr Amy McGrath OAM has been researching vote frauds for years. In her 2013 book Wolves in Australia (pages 452-455) she warns about GetUP as follows:
“Given the intensity of far-left GetUP Campaigning in 3 past elections … a new bag of tricks called PlanningAlerts, … lists addresses of applications to local Councils for buildings being built, knocked down, or changing hands. PlanningAlerts is not as innocent as it sounds. … GetUP’s building lists provide possibilities for false enrolments faster than in the past … Such stacking of an Electoral Roll may be difficult to detect in that names roll-stacked are taken off shortly after the election. One case verified by the Australian Electoral Commission …”
”Might the Canning Roll be ‘padded’ with false names using GetUP’s lists of demolished/vacant buildings, or be padded with real names pretending to move like in Indi?” asks Mr Stewart.
“AFHE notes that in the WA Senate re-run it seems that thousands of real people from outside WA pretended to move to WA because the anomalous extra absentee/ postal votes for the Greens almost equalled the anomalous huge increase in the Roll, but the AEC did not enquire into that.”
“We hope the AEC is capable of detecting and rectifying Roll anomalies before 19 September.”
“Because afterwards, even if it becomes manifest that Rolls were bodgied with pretended transfer enrolments or false enrolments, then the Court of Disputed Returns is forbidden by a stupid law from looking at such,” said Mr Stewart.
“Section 361(1) of the Commonwealth Electoral Act states ‘assuming the Roll to be correct, shall not inquire into the correctness of the Roll’. Who else is going to enquire into the false/ pretend enrolments if the highest court in the land is forbidden by stupid law to do it?”
