Sir,

It's time for voting reform in both state and federal politics. No doubt many people despair on hearing about government decisions on issues such as relaxed drug laws, same-sex marriage, privatisation, global trade agreements, family law and other issues.

In today's electronic age, it would be easy to accommodate the change to secret electronic voting for such issues.

Wouldn't it be wonderful if the Australian people could reclaim their representatives from the control of the party machines.

L. Herrmann,
Bunbury, WA
