FEDERAL ROLLS. [Newspaper Article] — Wangaratta Chronicle — 13 May 1914
FEDERAL ROLLS. The true inwardness of the Federal rolls as prepared by the Labour gov ernment for the last Federal election is now being disclosed before the Royal Commission, In Queensland there were 30,000 names on the roll that should not have been there. Of these 6000 to 8000 names appeared on two, three, four and five rolls. Whe ther or not these rolls as prepared by thle Liberal government were in the same state is not reported, but it is probable that they were, since the rolls could not have fallen into that condition in three years. There has been continuous neglect for many years. The fact is that the whole electoral system is open to grave irregularities, invites fraud, has no proper check upon the neglect of officers. The Federal and State rolls should be made one, Before that can be done the whole of the Australian rolls should be purged of their inaccuracies and brought up-to date at any cost. There should be a careful inquiry into the system of voting in the United St...
