31 May 2013

Sydney Law School's Constitutional Reform Unit (CRU) has developed a page of materials to help members of the public make an informed decision about how to vote in the upcoming local government referendum.

There is an alternative Yes/No case, that cuts through the spin and gives the issues for both sides in a clear manner.

There are also some FAQsto answer questions people might have about the background to referendum, how local government is currently funded and what difference the referendum might make.

For those who want to inquire futher, there is also a list of additional reading,ranging from academic articles and government reports to press releases and relevant news articles.

The site will continue to be developed to give the public the best possible information so that voters can make genuinely informed choices.
