How tickets work

The ticket system, introduced by PARSA in 2016, allows candidates to group together and identify themselves under a ticket name. This is helpful for candidates who share similar positions on issues to let voters know that, should those on that ticket be elected, they will back the proposals endorsed by the ticket.

If candidates are part of a ticket, the ticket name will be displayed next to the candidate's name on the ballot. 

If candidates do not register under a ticket name, the word "Independent" appears next to their name on the ballot.


For more information on:

- the rules governing tickets, see Clause 12 of the Electoral Regulations;

- how to register a ticket, download the Ticket Registration Form

- how to find a ticket to join, fill in the Ticket Expression of Interest Form;

- how to find someone looking to join a ticket, contact the the Returning Office;

- anything related to the election, come along to a candidate information session, or contact PARSA Operation Manager.
